Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley

Miranda Lambert got herself a star!

The country singer was among four iconic crooners who were honored with a star in Nashville's Music City Walk of Fame earlier today. Lambert's former tour buddy and fellow country star Dierks Bentley presented her with the tribute during the induction ceremony in downtown Nashville this afternoon.

Also among those honored were the legendary Johnny Cash, former Grand Ole Opry General Manager Bud Wendell and songwriter, producer and guitarist Steve Cropper.

Recipients of these stars are recognized for their significant contributions to preserving the musical heritage of Nashville and for contributing to the world through song of other industry collaborations.

"Thank you so much to the City of Nashville and Music City Walk of Fame for this honor and privilege," Lambert said in a release when it was revealed she'd be receiving a star.

"I am proud to join a heritage of other female inductees, such as Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Trisha Yearwood, Reba McEntire, Emmylou Harris and Martina McBride. This is a milestone moment that I will cherish forever. I want to congratulate my fellow inductees, Steve Cropper, E.W. ‘Bud' Wendell and the legendary Johnny Cash—just saying his name alongside mine, takes my breath away."

Lambert is a five-time CMA and six-time ACM Female Vocalist of the Year.
