Everyone’s favorite night in music, the Grammy Awards, will return in February. The ceremony itself is always painfully boring, but if you’re a fan of Jack White, you’ll be tickled to know that he’s being honored by the Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing during the week. White joins past exclusively male honorees T Bone Burnett, Chris Blackwell, Ahmet and Nesuhi Ertegun, Tom Dowd, Jimmy Iovine, Quincy Jones, Nile Rodgers, Rick Rubin, Al Schmitt, Jerry Wexler, and Neil Young. The celebration takes place on 2/8 at the Village Studios in West Los Angeles, and it’s the annual event’s 10th anniversary. White’s website made the following statement regarding the honor:
