Carrie Underwood to Receive Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Following in the footsteps of past country luminaries like Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn, Carrie Underwood will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Sept. 20.

Carrie will receive the 2,646th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, located at 1750 North Vine Street in front of Capitol Records.

Guest speakers at Carrie’s induction will include two men—Simon Cowell and Brad Paisley—who have shared the television screen with Carrie numerous times. Simon was a judge on American Idol when Carrie was named the Season 4 winner in 2005. Brad and Carrie will co-host the CMA Awards for the 11th time on Nov. 14.

“Fans of Carrie Underwood will be thrilled when they see their favorite performer accept her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies, said in a statement. “People from all over the world have been asking when she will be honored, and we are proud to say, the time is now. We welcome everyone to Hollywood to cheer her on.”

Carrie will release her new album, Cry Pretty, on Sept. 14.
