July 17, 2005 - Brad Receives Star on Walk of Fame

Sunday, July 17 was special for Brad Johner. That's when his "star" was added to Merritt, BC's Walk of Stars. The walk was created shortly after the community, home of the renowned Mountain Music Festival, was named Country Music Capital of Canada.

Brad joined an impressive list of modern stars and country legends already on the walk, a country music version of Hollywood's famous Star Walk. Those who have been similarly honoured including Lonestar, Johnny Cash, Ian Tyson, Brooks and Dunn, The Dixie Chicks, Trisha Yearwood, Randy Travis and Kenny Rogers.

"To have my name included with such country music greats is an incredible honour," Brad says. "I am touched that the people of Merritt chose to recognize me this way."
