Rascal Flatts Joins Elite Walk of Fame Class

Rascal Flatts and four members of the Country Music Hall of Fame will all receive additional recognition next month when they’re embedded in the Music City Walk of Fame in downtown Nashville.

Little Jimmy Dickens, Kris Kristofferson, Mel Tillis and the late Eddy Arnold — all of whom have bronze plaques nearby in the Hall of Fame — will have their names etched in the pavement alongside Rascal Flatts Nov. 7. So will the late Bobby Hebb, a Nashville-based artist who earned a 1960s hit with “Sunny.”

A project of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Walk of Fame is sponsored by GAC, Gibson Guitars, Metro Parks and the City of Nashville.

The sidewalk markers are set in a prime location. Walk of Fame Park is located on Demonbreun between 4th Street and 5th Street. Across the street on the southern side of the park is the Country Music Hall and Museum. Immediately to the west of the park is Bridgestone Arena, where the Country Music Association presents its 44th annual awards Nov. 10, three days after the Walk of Fame ceremony.

Two of the new inductees, Mel Tillis and Kris Kristofferson, were regulars at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, a bar just two blocks away from the park where country stars and songwriters gathered regularly during the 1960s. Kris and Mel will co-host a celebration of Tootsie’s 50th anniversary at the Ryman with Terri Clark the same night they join the Walk of Fame.

The new entries bring the total number of plaques in the Walk to 48. A few of the previous inductees: Reba McEntire, Marty Stuart, Steve Wariner, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Ronnie Milsap, Trace Adkins, Dolly Parton, Josh Turner and Martina McBride.
