Award-winning recording artists Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks will receive the 64th and 65th stars on the Music City Walk of Fame during a Sept. 10 induction ceremony.

“Trisha and Garth are two great artists who represent what makes Nashville special,” Nashville Mayor Karl Dean said. “They are musicians. They are entrepreneurs. And they are generous community advocates. The way they care about Nashville is as inspiring as their music.

"Garth stood strong with the city during the 2010 flood recovery, and we will never forget that. The city of Nashville is proud to recognize their accomplishments as individuals through inducting them into the Walk of Fame, and we are thrilled they will be our first husband-wife team to receive this honor.”

Yearwood has sold more than 12 million albums and is a platinum-selling, multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM Award-winning recording artists. Her number one hits include “She’s In Love With The Boy,” “XXX’s and OOO’s (An American Girl),” and “How Do I Live.”

Since 2007, Yearwood has written three New York Times Bestselling cookbooks, hosted six seasons of her Emmy Award-winning Food Network show, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, and debuted a line of cookware, Trisha’s Precious Metals, and her own home furnishings line, Trisha Yearwood Home Collection with Klaussner Home Furnishings.

Brooks is the No. 1-selling solo artist in US history with more than 136 million albums sold, according to RIAA. His worldwide critical acclaim includes being named the best-selling artist of the last two decades by Billboard, Nielson and SoundScan.

He has received an abundance of industry accolades and awards in his career, including multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM awards and being inducted into the International Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame. His many number one hits include “Friends in Low Places,” “The Thunder Rolls” and “The Dance.” Brooks has assisted in many humanitarian efforts, including performing 5 concerts in 2 days in 2008 to assist fire relief efforts in California, and performing 9 sold-out concerts in 6 days in 2010 to raise money for Nashville’s flood relief efforts.

The couple married in 2005 and recently relocated back to Nashville to continue their careers. They are both currently performing in the three-year Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood.

The Music City Walk of Fame was created in the fall of 2006 on Nashville’s Music Mile, a roughly one-mile stretch that connects downtown to Music Row.
