The stars will be unveiled during a ceremony on 10 September (15) on Nashville's famous Music Mile, which already features more than 60 other markers for artists such as Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Reba MCEntire, and Keith Urban among others.

Nashville Mayor Karl Dean says in a statement: "Trisha and Garth are two great artists who represent what makes Nashville special. They are musicians. They are entrepreneurs. And they are generous community advocates. The way they care about Nashville is as inspiring as their music. The city of Nashville is proud to recognise their accomplishments as individuals through inducting them into the Walk of Fame."

They will become the first husband-and-wife team to receive the honour.
