Rockers Kings of Leon being honored with their own star on Nashville’s version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame

The music world hasn’t heard too much from rockers Kings of Leon as of late, other than word that the band working on new music, but the news just dropped that the Nashville-based collection will soon be honored with their own star on Nashville’s version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Kings of Leon will get the 61st star on the Music City Walk of Fame during a special induction ceremony Sept. 21 at 1 p.m. ET.

“Kings of Leon was created and discovered in Nashville, and the band still proudly calls the city home,” Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau president and CEO Butch Spyridon said in a statement. “They are a perfect example of what this project is all about — local musicians who transcend genre to produce great music loved by all.”

Want to attend? You’re in luck, as the ceremony is completely free and open to public. The event will take place at Walk of Fame Park, directly across the street from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. For more on all things Kings of Leon, head over to the band’s official website.

In other Kings of Leon news, bass player Jared Followill recently announced that he has launched a new side project, Smoke & Jackal. The band’s six-song debut EP will arrive in October.
