Neil Young Honored in Star-Studded Tribute
Music City invaded Tinsel Town over the weekend, not only for the Grammy Awards, but also for a very worthwhile cause. Several country artists, along with musicians from around the world, participated in the annual MusiCares tribute, honoring an icon who has made significant contributions in both the world of music and in helping those in need -- the legendary Neil Young.
Previous MusiCares honoree Emmylou Harris was joined by fellow Nashvillians Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum and Lucinda Williams, along with Sheryl Crow, James Taylor, John Mellencamp, Jackson Browne, Wilco, Elton John and Jack Black in paying tribute to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member.
Credited with the creation of Farm Aid -- along with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp, Neil Young joins an elite list of artists MusiCares has honored in the past, including Elton John, Bono, Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder.
