For Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Christmas has come early. Country’s hottest couple will be the next country superstars to be inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame.
The Music City Walk of Fame—created in 2006— is a tribute to artists of all genres who have contributed to the world through song and made a significant contribution to the music industry with a connection to Music City. Sidewalk medallions line the one-mile stretch with the names of the inductees etched in a star and guitar design. Tim and Faith will be receiving the 73rd and 74th stars on the Walk of Fame.
“Faith Hill and Tim McGraw both came to Nashville in the 1980s with big dreams and huge talent,” said Nashville Mayor Megan Barry. “Driven by their determination and a lot of hard work, they eventually found great success—and each other. Tim and Faith have made a big difference in our city, not only with their music but also with their generous contributions to many important causes. They deserve to join the many other incredible artists on the Music City Walk of Fame, and I’m looking forward to their induction.”
Last years ceremony— in Oct. 2015— saw Miranda Lambert inducted into the Walk of Fame, while Jack White and Loretta Lynn were inducted in June of 2015. Past inductees include Trace Adkins, Bill Anderson, Garth Brooks, Kix Brooks, Johnny Cash, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton, Randy Travis, Keith Urban, Hank Williams Sr., Trisha Yearwood, and more.
Mark your calendars and make your travel arrangements. The event will take place on October 5 at Walk of Fame Park in Nashville.
Congratulations to the Hill-McGraw family!
