Jack White To Be Honored By Producers And Engineers During Grammy Week

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:
