Patsy Cline is Latest Shining Star on Music City Walk of Fame
By Anthony Cesario
Today, country music legend Patsy Cline was inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame, a tribute to those who have made significant contributions to the world of music and have a connection to Nashville. She was inducted along with John Prine, Dr. Paul T. Kwami, and Ed Hardy.
Cline has been regarded as one of the most influential figures in country music, and her legacy has only grown since her tragic death in 1963. She was one of the first country musicians to cross over into pop music with hits such as “I Fall to Pieces” and “Crazy.” She was also quite important in establishing a female presence in country music, pioneering the path for generations of women to come; one such woman is Trisha Yearwood, who presented Cline’s award at the ceremony.
The induction ceremony took place at the Music City Walk of Fame Park, which is located on Demonbreun Street between 4th and 5th Avenues. The landmark is free and open to the public, so anyone can come and see the new star that has been unveiled in Cline’s honor.
The Music City Walk of Fame accepts nominations from the public in the categories of Artist, Musician, Songwriter, and Producer/Music Industry Executive. These nominations are reviewed by an anonymous selection committee. If you would like to learn more, you can visit the organization’s website.
