The Recording Academy To Honor Lady Antebellum, Others At Grammys On Hill Awards

Music and politics unite at The Recording Academy's 2014 GRAMMYs on the Hill Awards where seven-time GRAMMY winners Lady Antebellum will be presented with the Recording Artists' Coalition Award (named for The Academy's artists' rights program founded by Don Henley and Sheryl Crow), while House of Representatives majority whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will also be honored for their support and understanding of music creators' unique role in American life.

Known as "Washington's most interesting mix of music and politics," the event will take place on Wednesday, April 2, at The Hamilton Live in D.C., and will include live performances and one-of-a-kind tributes.

In addition, Westfield Academy and Central School (Westfield, N.Y.) music teacher Kent Knappenberger, the recipient of the inaugural Music Educator Award™, presented by The Recording Academy and the GRAMMY Foundation, will be acknowledged for his dedication to music education.

The GRAMMYs on the Hill Awards are sponsored by SESAC, and proceeds from the event will benefit the GRAMMY Foundation's GRAMMY® Signature Schools, which provides support for underserved music programs throughout the country.
