Just announced, Little Big Town will receive a star on the Walk of Fame in Nashville on September 14. The country music mega group got to announce this surprise themselves. Watch as band member Phillip Sweet reads the teleprompter, not realizing he is talking about his own band.
The look on rest of the group faces is priceless!
So incredibly grateful!#MusicCityWalkofFame • Visit Music City

On Sept 14, the Music City Walk of Fame will pay tribute to the Ryman Auditorium in celebration of the historic venue’s 125th anniversary with the induction and presentation of stars to Little Big Town, the Country Music mega-group in residency at the Mother Church, along with two luminaries in the Ryman’s past: Tom Ryman, the riverboat captain who was inspired by a revival preacher to build the Union Gospel Tabernacle; and Lula C. Naff, the theater manager who helmed the Auditorium for more than 40 years and famously booked the Grand Ole Opry. The event is free and open to the public.
Music City Walk of Fame was created in 2006 on Nashville’s Music Mile, a roughly one-mile stretch that connects downtown to Music Row. Permanent sidewalk medallions with the names of the inductees are displayed in a star-and-guitar design.
