NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - Four musicians will be inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame Monday morning.

The inductees include:

  • Country-folk and Americana singer-songwriter John Prine

  • Industry executive Ed Hardy

The induction ceremony will take place at 11 a.m. at Music City Walk of Fame Park.

“Each of these four inductees left an enduring mark on Music City, and their influence continues today,” said Kevin Lavender, Executive Vice President at 5/3 Bank and chairman of the Board of Directors of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. “The Music City Walk of Fame is proud to pay tribute to these legends with their induction, and we are especially honored to have their family members attend to accept on their behalf.”

The induction ceremony will bestow the 94th, 95th, 96th and 97th stars on the Music City Walk of Fame. Each inductee will have a family member accepting the induction on their behalf.

Several artists will be attending the ceremony including the following:

  • Pop and rockabilly’s “Little Miss Dynamite” Brenda Lee will present for John Prine. Prine’s wife Fiona Whelan Prine will accept the induction on his behalf.
