Congratulations to Dr. Bobby Jones, who is among seven new inductees into Nashville’s Music City Walk of Fame. The ceremony took place Sunday. Jones is celebrated for his longstanding contributions to the advancement and preservation of gospel music. He is perhaps most widely recognized as the host of BET’s Bobby Jones Gospel, which has been on TV for more than 30 years.
Fellow gospel singer and writer Dottie Rambo was also honored posthumously with a star. Rambo is known for her 2,500-plus compositions including “We Shall Behold Him,” “He Looked Beyond My Fault,” and “I Go to the Rock.”
The stars laud persons who have made significant creative contributions in the city of Nashville.
Jones and Rambo join more than 50 past inductees, including Elvis Presley and Jimi Hendrix.
