Loretta Lynn to Be Inducted Into Music City Walk of Fame

Loretta Lynn

Nashville will mark the grand re-opening of its Music City Walk of Fame by inducting Loretta Lynn in June.

 

The Walk of Fame Park has been closed while it underwent a multi-million-dollar renovation. Lynn will be one of the first artists inducted when its re-opens, along with former White Stripes frontman Jack White, with whom she collaborated on her critically acclaimed Van Lear Rose album.

 

83-year-old Lynn is one of the most important female singer-songwriters in the history of country music, with a long string of hits including “Fist City,” “One’s on the Way,” “The Pill” and the career-defining “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” She’s still actively touring, and late last year she signed new multi-album deal with Legacy Recordings to release several new projects, which will consist of new material that she has been writing and recording since 2007. The albums will focus on new songs, as well as new recordings of some country classics and even new renditions of Lynn’s own classic catalog. The collections will also include gospel and Appalachian folk songs that Lynn learned from her mother while growing up in Kentucky.

 

“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the reopening of Walk of Fame Park than with the induction of Loretta Lynn and Jack White — two very diverse artists,” Nashville Mayor Karl Dean says in a press release. “They represent what is best about Nashville with music that spans multiple genres and generations. They are great ambassadors for the creative community in our city, and I congratulate them on this wonderful honor.”

 

Past inductees include Roy Orbison, Emmylou Harris, Reba McEntire, Vince Gill and many more. Lynn’s induction will take place at a ceremony on June 4, which will be open to the public.
