Kings of Leon to join Music City Walk of Fame

Posted on September 13, 2012 at 11:10 PM


Middle Tennessee fans can celebrate a crowning achievement for Kings of Leon on September 21, when the Nashville rock band will be inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame.

 

KOL will receive the 61st star in the pavement of Walk of Fame Park in downtown Nashville, joining the likes of Hank Williams, Dolly Parton and Jimi Hendrix. The Music City Walk of Fame was established in 2005 by Music City, Inc. - the charitable foundation of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau - to honor influential musical figures with a strong connection to Nashville.

 

In a release, Nashville CVB president and CEO Butch Spyridon said the band was an ideal fit for the Walk of Fame.

 

“Kings of Leon was created and discovered in Nashville, and the band still proudly calls the city home," he said. "They are a perfect example of what this project is all about - local musicians who transcend genre to produce great music loved by all.”

 

The induction ceremony is free and open to public, and takes place at 1 p.m. on Friday, September 21 at Walk of Fame Park (Demonbreun, between 4th and 5th Ave S.).
