Faith Hill, Emmylou Harris to Honor Sir Paul McCartney
Country stars Faith Hill and Emmylou Harris are joining a long list of celebrities who will pay tribute to rock icon Paul McCartney next month, when the former Beatle is honored as this year's recipient of the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize of Popular Song.
Held on June 2 at the White House, the event will include performances of some of Paul's biggest hits by Stevie Wonder, Corrine Bailey Rae, Herbie Hancock, the Jonas Brothers, Elvis Costello, Jack White and Dave Grohl, and will also feature comedian Jerry Seinfeld.
Having already been knighted by the Queen of England, Sir Paul joins Stevie and Paul Simon as the only artists to receive the nation's highest award for pop music. The event will air on PBS on July 28.
