Little Big Town React To Music City Walk Of Fame Honor
Whether its upbeat banjo-based barnburners or vulnerable ballads, Little Big Town have provided their fans with an unforgettable soundtrack through their two-decade career in country music. Now, the two-time GRAMMY winners' star will rise even higher with induction into the Music City Walk of Fame in Nashville.
The quartet — Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook, and Phillip Sweet — will receive a star on the walk of fame on Sept. 14, which is part of a tribute to the Ryman Auditorium, the venerable Music City venue that is celebrating its 125th anniversary in 2017. The event is free and open to the public.
Located along Nashville's Music Mile, the Music City Walk of Fame serves as a tribute to those "who have contributed to the world through song or other industry collaboration and made a significant contribution to the music industry with connection to Music City."
Little Big Town, who will have performed 10 sold-out concerts at the Ryman by the end of 2017, were inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2014. The group won their most recent GRAMMY for "Girl Crush" at the 58th GRAMMY Awards.
