The late Hank Williams Sr., Steven Curtis Chapman, Merle Kilgore, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Kirk Whalum and Steve Wariner are now immortalized on the Music City Walk of Fame. The Class of 2008 was inducted Sunday at a ceremony in Nashville's Hall of Fame Park, where commemorative sidewalk markers honoring each inductee were unveiled.

Garth Brooks was a surprise guest speaker at the event, introducing his good friend and 'Longneck Bottle' duet partner, Steve Wariner. He spoke to the crowd about Wariner's first No. 1 single.

"I know exactly where I was when I heard 'All Roads Lead To You,'" Brooks raved. "I remember the truck I was in, and I was hearing the voice of a guy that was singin' for the workin' man."

The Music City Walk of Fame is a landmark tribute to artists and songwriters from all genres of music who have made significant contributions to preserving the musical heritage of Nashville.
