Walk of Fame Park

Updated: Apr 8, 2021

The Country Music Hall of Fame moved to its current location in 2001. The Hilton opened the following year. The park front between the two was referred to the “Hall of Fame park” almost immediately. It was a popular part for many festivals, sites for events for CMA Fest, and often tented and rented for black tie affairs and charity functions. In spirit of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Music City Walk of Fame was established in 2006, and the name of the park has gone from “Hall of Fame Park” to “Walk of Fame Park” since then, though both names are used interchangeable. The Parks Board had taken over the maintenance of the land in 2004.

Walk of Fame Park is located between the Nashville downtown Hilton, the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Bridgestone Concert Arena, the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. It is on top of an underground parking garage, and has a Music City Walk of Fame with granite stars that honor Nashville music industry superstars. It was founded as a partnership with Nashville Parks and Recreation, the Nashville Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, with large corporate sponsor Gibson Guitars. There are two yearly induction ceremonies, each spring and each fall.

The stars are granite, but lackluster in design. If you were a tourist, and seeing music-themed attractions in the area, this would be a perfect cherry on top of the sundae. For a local, this is a great spot to attend a fun function- especially for an induction ceremony experience in a post-COVID world.
