Little Big Town Earn Music City Walk of Fame Induction
Little Big Town are getting their own star on the Music City Walk of Fame. Their addition to Walk of Fame Park is part of a tribute to the Ryman Auditorium, which is celebrating 125 years in 2017.
Little Big Town are currently in the middle of a year-long residency at the historic auditorium that has played an integral role in shaping Nashville into Music City. The country quartet will receive their star on the Music City Walk of Fame during a ceremony being held on Sept. 14 at Walk of Fame Park. They are being honored alongside Tom Ryman and Lula C. Naff, both important players in the Ryman Auditorium's long history.
“Tom Ryman had a vision. Lula Naff had a plan. And their tenacity and skill created one of Nashville’s most beautiful and iconic buildings -- and one of the greatest music venues the world has ever seen,” Mayor Megan Barry says in a press release. “Now Little Big Town is adding a new chapter to the story of the Mother Church of Country Music with its unprecedented Ryman residency. The induction of each of these legends into the Music City Walk of Fame couldn’t be more appropriate as the Ryman celebrates 125 years of gorgeous music and amazing history.”
Little Big Town began their 2017 Ryman Auditorium residency, Little Big Town at the Mother Church, in February; they also performed at the venue in May and have dates scheduled for September and November.
“As musicians, there is no better feeling in the world than playing on the stage at the Ryman,” says LBT's Jimi Westbrook. “To be given the opportunity to headline their first residency means so much to us as a band, and we promise to make each night as memorable for the fans as possible.”
Fans are welcome to attend Little Big Town's Music City Walk of Fame induction; the event is free and open to the public. More information about the ceremony can be found on the Music City Walk of Fame's website.
