Country music capital Nashville, Tennessee is to get its very own Walk Of Fame. Similar to the tourist landmark in Hollywood, the new attraction will feature music legends like JOHNNY CASH, TAMMY WYNETTE and WILLIE NELSON. Bluegrass legend EARL SCRUGGS, who is also set to be immortalised in cement, joined singer PAM TILLIS and soul legend STEVE CROPPER to announce the news in the city yesterday (10AUG06). According to website CMT.com, the inductions will be open to all singers, musicians, songwriters, producers and music industry executives of all genres who have played a significant role in making Nashville an international music centre. The first medallions will be placed in the park across the street from the Country Music Hall Of Fame. Nominations began yesterday (10AUG06).
