In a first for the Recording Academy, the 2018 MusiCares Person of the Year will be a group, with legendary rock band Fleetwood Mac to receive the honor, the AP reports.
Past honorees include Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder and Barbra Streisand, the report notes. The Academy said it is honoring Fleetwood Mac for “their significant creative accomplishments and their longtime support of a number of charitable causes.”
The honor will be presented at the 28th annual benefit gala, set for Radio City Music Hall in New York on Jan. 26, 2018, two days before the 2018 Grammy Awards.
All five members of the group’s most enduring lineup — Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham — are expected to be on hand to receive the honor.
