Yesterday afternoon, Jack White was inducted into the Nashville Walk Of Fame in honor of his contributions to the city. He was inducted with his friend Loretta Lynn, with whom he’s often collaborated.
Of course, the induction made sense. White has lived in Nashville for almost 10 years—his love of country music led him there—and he’s worked with many of the city’s stalwarts, including Lynn. He also built the headquarters of his influential label, Third Man Records, in the city.
Lynn meanwhile is one of the most famous female country singers of all time.
According to Consequence of Sound, Loretta Lynn gave a speech introducing White. She described the importance White has had on the city’s close-knit scene.
