Jack White was honored with the first-ever "Music City Ambassador Award" on Saturday from the City of Nashville! Congrats, Jack, on your award!
Why was White given this honor? Well, he has fostered plenty of efforts for Nashville, helping the fair city garner global recognition over the last 12 months through his work in both his music career and his Third Man Records label and store.
"Today's award recognizes an individual who carries Nashville's diverse musical message worldwide," Mayor Karl Dean said in the award presentation. "Jack White's individual talent and unique creative spirit bridges gaps between genres and generations and I couldn't be more pleased to thank him for his work on behalf of the music industry and its hometown."
White accepted the award by saying, "Every day we're excited to be in a city that truly fosters local music and businesses and new ideas. I don't know another town whose mayor is on the board of its music council." That makes me want to move to Nashville!
