In 2025, Keith Urban and George Strait will receive their latest honours: stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Steve Nissen made the announcement on Monday (24 June) at Ovation Hollywood, alongside music producer Jimmy Jam and actors Joe Mantegna and Niecy Nash.

No date for the ceremony has been announced yet, but the official star ceremonies will be streamed worldwide after the dates are revealed.

The two country music icons—George Strait, an American performer, and Keith Urban, born in New Zealand but now an Australian-American star—will be joined by Prince (honoured posthumously), punk rock band Green Day, The Isley Brothers, Fantasia, The B-52s, Busta Rhymes, and more.

Here is the complete list of recording artists, actors, performers, and others who will receive stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2025.

On Instagram, Strait’s team wrote alongside a congratulatory image of the singer, “Join us in celebrating George’s induction into The Hollywood Walk of Fame Class of 2025 RECORDING category!”

Earlier this month, Strait broke the US attendance record for a live music event, drawing an incredible 110,905 punters to his show at the Kyle Field football stadium on the campus of Texas A&M University. 

The historic show broke a record previously held by the Grateful Dead, who, on the night of 3 September 1977, played to 107,019 fans at Raceway Park in New Jersey. It also came just over ten years after Strait himself set the record for the largest ticketed concert crowd in Texas – on 7 June 2014, he made history by playing for 104,793 punters at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

Meanwhile, Keith Urban is set to end this week on a high. After celebrating his 18th wedding anniversary with his wife Nicole Kidman, the Riptide singer posted a video on Instagram just hours ago with the hint: “Going up?”

New album time?

Earlier this year, Urban released two singles, Straight Line and Messed Up As Me, that will feature on his forthcoming unannounced twelfth album.

Last month, he surprise-dropped another trackGo Home W U with Lainey Wilson, which may just be his teased “one duet on the album”.
