NMC ANNOUNCES AMERICAN EAGLE HONOREES

What do Harry Shearer, Crystal Gayle and Patti Smith have in common?  Each will be honored at the National Music Council’s American Eagle Awards, given out to those who make an exemplary contribution to American musical culture and heritage.

"Each year, the National Music Council carefully chooses a very small group of music creators, artists, educators and advocates to honor for their truly remarkable contributions to American and global musical culture," said NMC Director David Sanders. "Those whose careers we have celebrated in the past are among the giants of American music, and Ms. Gayle, Ms. Smith and Mr. Shearer are worthy additions to the list of those whose long-standing excellence continues to make the U.S. music community the world's leader in musical arts innovation."

Past recipients have included Stephen Sondheim, Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, Clive Davis, Lionel Hampton, Dizzy Gillespie and Sesame Street.

The 34th annual American Eagle Awards will be held 7/13 at the Summer NAMM Show at Nashville’s Music City Center
