Nashville’s Music City Walk of Fame will soon include Jack White

Jack White hails from Detroit, but he mainly works in Nashville now, and Music City has embraced him. The former White Stripes frontman will be recognized by the Nashville music community this June when he gets inducted into Nashville’s Music City Walk of Fame. He’ll be joined by country star and collaborator Loretta Lynn at the induction ceremony and ribbon-cutting for the newly renovated Walk of Fame Park. White produced Lynn’s 2004 album, “Van Lear Rose.”

“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 said in a statement. “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.”

White’s ties with Nashville include having his record label, Third Man Records, headquartered in the city, as well as the label’s main record store.

The induction and ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Music City Walk of Fame will take place June 4. The induction and ceremony will be free and open to the public.
