Honorees are recognized for their “significant contributions to preserving the musical heritage of Nashville and for contributing to the world through song or other industry collaboration.”

The event, which will be open to the public, will take place at Walk of Fame Park on October 6 at 2 p.m. local time.

“Johnny Cash was and still is nothing short of an icon, one of the very finest artists ever to grace our city’s studios and stages,” says Nashville Mayor Karl Dean, while also praising Cropper’s “gritty and soulful guitar work.”

The Music City Walk of Fame was created in 2006 and is located on Nashville’s Music Mile, which connects the downtown area to Music Row. Previous inductees include Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Hank Williams, Roy Orbison, Dolly Parton, Les Paul, Michael McDonald, Steve Winwood, Peter Frampton, Jimi Hendrix, Charlie Daniels, Kris Kristofferson and The Crickets.
