Brooks, Yearwood to get stars on Walk of Fame
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Grammy-winning country music couple Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood will get their own stars on the Music City Walk of Fame later this year.
The Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau announced on Tuesday that the new stars will be unveiled at an induction ceremony on Sept. 10. After a long hiatus from touring, the pair recently moved back to Nashville, Tennessee, from Oklahoma and are currently on tour together.
Mayor Karl Dean noted that Brooks helped raise money for residents devastated by floods in 2010 and said both artists are generous community advocates.
Yearwood has sold more than 12 million albums in her career and is the host of an Emmy-award winning cooking show. Brooks is the top selling solo artist in U.S. history with more than 136 million albums sold.
