The class of 2021 for the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been revealed, with several artists with country ties making the cut. In an announcement from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, Trisha Yearwood, the Judds and Kelly Clarkson will all receive the honor.
“After 37 years, I still find myself amazed! What a journey it has been so far. Thankful to still be included,” said Wynonna Judd in a press release.
“Many years ago before moving to Nashville, we lived in Hollywood. 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,” Naomi Judd added.
Yearwood’s team also responded to the news, tweeting “Congratulations Trisha on being part of the class of 2021 to receive your Medium star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! We love you -TeamTY”
