The Music City Walk of Fame has announced some new additions!
Dierks Bentley, Keb Mo, Bobby Bare, and Connie Smith are the newest additions. They have a lot to celebrate with this huge accomplishment.
The induction ceremony will take place on April 5th at 2 p.m., according to Music Row. If you are in the area, head on over to the Music City Walk of Fame Park! The event is free and open to the public.

The Music Row executive and chairman of Music City, Ed Hardy recently shared the news on the news outlet.
“We are proud to bring back a Music City Walk of Fame ceremony with such a distinguished and diverse group of inductees who span various genres and eras of music,” Hardy said. “The individuals in the Walk of Fame remind us of Nashville’s rich history as Music City, and we congratulate the newest four members.”
