Downtown Nashville’s Music City Walk of Fame has added four stars to its famed stretch, including Miranda Lambert and the late Johnny Cash.

Cash, who died in 2003, is considered one of the most influential musicians in modern history. His brother Tommy accepted the honor on his behalf Thursday.

“I miss him very much,” Tommy Cash said at the ceremony, according to The Tennessean. “He’s been gone 12 years, and June Carter Cash has been gone, but their spirits and their genuineness [are] here in this plaque.”

Introduced by country star Dierks Bentley, Lambert, 31, praised the city of Nashville while accepting the honor.

I’ve moved back here, and I’ve never felt more at home. I’ve never felt more inspired,” she said.

The singer is no stranger to success: Four of her five studio albums have placed in the top 20 of the Billboard 200, including last year’s Platinum, which hit No. 1.

Joining Cash and Lambert as new inductees on the Walk of Fame are E.W. “Bud” Wendell, an influential executive and former manager of the Grande Ole Opry, and guitarist Steve Cropper, who famously played for The Blues Brothers as well as Booker T. & the M.G.’s, which backed Otis Redding among other artists.
