Jimi Hendrix Among Music City Hall of Fame Inductees


Jimi Hendrix, Vince Gill and Barbara Mandrell will all be honored by Music City Inc. for their lifetime contribution.

Jimi Hendrix, Vince Gill and other music greats are set to be inducted to Music City Hall of Fame. Sponsored by Gibson Guitar, the event will see six honorees inducted on November 5 in the Hall of Fame Park, Nashville.

Beside the renown musicians, the list also include Grammy award-winning singer Rodney Crowell, country songwriter Bob DiPiero, record producer Buddy Killen, and Barbara 'The Princess of Steel' Mandrell.

"This class of inductees showcases the immense talent, creativity and diverse musical styles that make Nashville, Music City," said Butch Spyridon, president of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau.

"Each honoree has left an indelible mark on our city's musical heritage and music worldwide. It is a privilege to pay tribute to their great success."

Public is welcomed to attend the ceremony which will be made free.

Entering the second year, Music City Hall of Fame is conducted in a tribute to those from all music genres who have preserved musical heritage of Nashville.

Honoree names will be embedded on a stainless steel and terrazzo plank in shape of a star-and-guitar. The sidewalk medallions will stretch about one mile from Demonbreun Street from 4th Avenue South to the Buddy Killen Circle at 16th Avenue South.

The plaques for this class of inductees will be inlaid at Hall of Fame Park in Demonbreun, between 4th and 5th Avenues South.
