From Nashville Star to her very own star on the streets of Nashville, Miranda Lambert is shining brighter than ever before with her induction into the Music City Walk of Fame.
Dressed in a chic black pantsuit and dark, retro sunglasses, the five-time CMA and six-time ACM Female Vocalist of the Year received the honor Tuesday (Oct. 6) from her pal and fellow country star Dierks Bentley during a ceremony in downtown Nashville.
“I’ve been spending a lot of time here the last three or four months,” Lambert told the crowd. “I’ve moved back here, and I’ve never felt more at home. I’ve never felt more inspired. I’ve listened to live music or written music every single day since I’ve been here.”
Lambert also released a statement thanking the city of Nashville and the Music City Walk of Fame for the honor.
“I am proud to join a heritage of other female inductees, such as Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Trisha Yearwood, Reba McEntire, Emmylou Harris and Martina McBride,” she said. “This is a milestone moment that I will cherish forever.”
Lambert also congratulated her fellow inductees — legendary guitarist Steve Cropper, former Grand Ole Opry general manager E.W. ‘Bud’ Wendell and one of her musical heroes, the late Johnny Cash.
“Just saying his name alongside mine takes my breath away,” Lambert said
Cash’s younger brother, Tommy, was present to accept the honor on the icon’s behalf.
