Crowell, Gill, Mandrell, Hendrix Tapped for Walk of Fame

Rodney Crowell, Vince Gill, Barbara Mandrell, songwriter Bob DiPiero and the late Jimi Hendrix and Buddy Killen are in the latest round of inductees into the Music City Walk of Fame. They will be recognized when commemorative sidewalk markers are unveiled in the Hall of Fame Park in downtown Nashville on Nov. 5. Hendrix moved to Nashville in 1962 after being discharged from the Army at nearby Fort Campbell, Ky. He performed in Nashville at clubs on Jefferson Street and in Printer’s Alley before moving to New York. Killen was a noted music publisher and record producer. The Music City Walk of Fame was created in 2006 to honor those who have made significant contributions to the musical heritage of Nashville.
