A new batch of inductees was introduced last Sunday. Nashville's Music City Walk of Fame honored musicians such as Wynonna Judd, Emmylou Harris, Michael W. Smith, John Hiatt, The Crickets and Frances W. Preston.
"The greatest credit to a writer is to have good writers cover their songs, John's songs have been recorded by Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Willie Nelson," said Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's Jeff Hanna who handed Hiatt's honorary. Actor Jim Caviezel on behalf of Smith said that the singer and songwriter has been such an inspiration both for him and other musicians.
The Crickets' award was presented by Nanci Griffith and John Shiely who said that the band has played a huge role in rock industry. Country singer Harris got her turn when her best friend Rodney Crowell paid a tribute to her. Meanwhile, Judd enlightened the day saying, "Though we come from different genres of music, this is about the human spirit today."
