“It is an honor to be a part of yet another historic day in Music City,” Andersen says. “I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to perform at the induction of these two true talented artists at Nashville’s momentous landmarks.”
The ceremony, which is located on Demonbreun Street between 4th and 5th Avenue, is free and open to the public.

As “Ambassador of Music City,” Andersen has performed for each of the 63 inductions since the project began in 2006. A virtuoso musician, Andersen has performed Gospel, Rock, Country, Jazz or Classical music appropriate for each individual star.
