Although they aren't the biggest names in country music, Josh Turner and Marty Stuart are making an impact in the industry. Turner and Stuart will join four other new inductees in the Music City Walk of Fame. They will be honored at a ceremony at Hall of Fame Park within sight of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Marty and Josh will be honored among other honorees such as songwriter-producer "Cowboy" Jack Clement, who produced the Johnny Cash hit, "Ring Of Fire" and Charley Pride's "Kiss An Angel Good Mornin'"; Mike Curb, whose record label markets music by Tim McGraw, LeAnn Rimes and Rodney Atkins; gospel singer CeCe Winans; and the late Dr. R.H. Boyd.

Butch Spyridon, president of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau says that each honoree represents the immense talent, creativity and diverse musical styles that make Nashville, Music City.

The induction is being sponsored by GAC and Gibson Guitar and brings the number of plaques in the Walk of Fame to 37. The ceremony takes place on April 19, 2009.
