Trisha Yearwood, Garth Brooks to receive stars on Music City Walk of Fame

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN)  – Country artists Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks will receive the 64th and 65th stars on the Music City Walk of Fame in downtown Nashville Thursday.

“Trisha and Garth are two great artists who represent what makes Nashville special,” Nashville Mayor Karl Dean said. “They are musicians. They are entrepreneurs. And they are generous community advocates. The way they care about Nashville is as inspiring as their music. Garth stood strong with the city during the 2010 flood recovery, and we will never forget that. The city of Nashville is proud to recognize their accomplishments as individuals through inducting them into the Walk of Fame, and we are thrilled they will be our first husband-wife team to receive this honor.”

Married in 2005, the couple recently relocated back to Nashville to continue their careers. They are both currently performing in a three-year world tour.

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is currently featuring an exhibit featuring the career of Yearwood through December.

The Music City Walk of Fame was created in the fall of 2006 on Nashville’s Music Mile, a roughly one-mile stretch that connects downtown to Music Row.

Permanent sidewalk medallions with the artists’ name displayed in a star-and-guitar design will be installed in the sidewalk along the Music Mile.
