Past inductees include Johnny Cash, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Keith Urban, Hank Williams, Trisha Yearwood, Little Big Town, Kenny Rogers and more.
The inductees will receive the 85th, 86th, 87th, 88th and 89th stars on the Walk of Fame. The new honorees will be “recognized for their significant contributions to preserving the musical heritage of Nashville and for contributing to the world through song or other industry collaboration.”
