According to a news release posted Oct. 17 at Grammy.com, the legendary Canuck singer-songwriter will be recognized by the Recording Academy Producers and Engineers Wing for his commitment to excellence and ongoing support for the art and craft of recorded music.
Commenting on the 'Heart of Gold' hitmaker's selection, Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow said in the release, "It is with great honor that we pay tribute to a musical icon who has been tireless in his own efforts to draw attention to the importance of hearing music as the artists who created it intended, and who has continually set precedents of excellence within the music community."
The two-time Grammy winner, who was honored at the 2010 Grammys as MusiCares Person of the Year, will receive the tribute at a ceremony to be held on Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014, at the Village Studios in Los Angeles.
