Last year, Nashville's Music City Walk of Fame Park was temporarily closed for renovations. This is where legendary artists like Alan Jackson, Dolly Parton, and Elvis Presley have been honored with permanent plaques. The park will reopen on June 4 and induct two artists.
Loretta Lynn and Jack White are the first people to be inducted since September 2012. Nashville mayor, Karl Dean, is very excited about reopening the Walk of Fame Park and inducting these two very diverse artists. "They represent what is best about Nashville with music that spans multiple genres and generations. They are great ambassadors for the creative community in our city, and I congratulate them on this wonderful honor," he said in a statement.
Loretta and Jack surprisingly have collaborated several times. He produced and lent his vocals to her 2004 album Van Lear Rose. "Portland, Oregon" is just one of their collaborations.
With over 45 millions albums sold, countless hit songs, and over a 50-year career, there is no surprise why the 83-year-old is being inducted into the Walk of Fame. Watch her perform her signature song, "Coal Miner's Daughter" below.
