Lifetime Achievement Award

The Grammys announced the 2013 recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award: Glenn Gould, Charlie Haden, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Carole King, Patti Page, Ravi Shankar, and The Temptations. The 2013 Grammys will be held on February 9, 2013.

As stated at Grammy.org, this award is selected by a vote of the Recording Academy’s National Trustees. It is given to those “who, during their lifetimes, have made creative contributions of outstanding artistic significance to the field of recording.” The first recipient was Bing Crosby in 1962.

The Grammys also give out a The Trustees Award. Click for more details. All Lifetime Achievement honorees are listed below.

The Grammys also give a Trustees Award to individuals who have significantly contributed to music in ways other than performance. This would imply that the Lifetime Achievement Award is a performers-only award and that no performers have won the Trustees Award, but the line is not that clearly defined.
