Following in the footsteps of past country luminaries like Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn and more, Trisha Yearwood and The Judds will be honored with stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced the 2021 Class of inductees in the following categories: Motion Pictures, Television, Live Theatre/Live Performance, Recording and Radio. The more than 30 new inductees include Zac Efron, Courtney Cox, Kelly Clarkson, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Christian Slater and more.
“After 37 years, I still find myself amazed,” said Wynonna Judd. “What a journey it has been so far. Thankful to still be included.”
“Many years ago before moving to Nashville, we lived in Hollywood,” said Naomi Judd. “It was a very hard time. I could barely pay the rent and keep food on the table for Ashley, Wynonna and myself. Walking down Hollywood Boulevard, and seeing those stars under my feet, it just never occurred to me that our names would one day be on a star with all of those famous people. It’s surreal to even imagine it now. I’m thrilled that we have been given such amazing recognition.”
Honorees will be recognized with a star unveiling ceremony in Hollywood at a later date.
