Sheryl Crow, Sens. John Cornyn & Amy Klobuchar To Be Honored At Grammys On The Hill Awards

On April 30, the Recording Academy will host its annual Grammys on the Hill Awards, honoring nine-time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow and Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) for their contributions to support music creators.

Hosted by singer and actress Candiace Dillard Bassett, the awards dinner will be held at the Hamilton Live in Washington, D.C., and will feature live performances and special guests.

Crow has dedicated much of her life to activism, supporting policies and philanthropic endeavors close to her heart.

“Receiving this award from Recording Academy is a tremendous honor for me, because protecting the rights of creators is more important now than ever before,” said Crow. “In this age where technology is changing the world faster than we can adapt, we need clear eyes to see both the opportunities and the challenges ahead, so that artists are not disadvantaged any more than they already are. Music nourishes our humanity, and I am proud to be recognized as an advocate for the protection of the people who make it.”

Cornyn and Klobuchar are the congressional honorees being recognized for their stalwart support of creators and their collaborative efforts championing key policies in support of the music community.

“As a Texan, a love of live music is in my blood, and I’ve been proud to lead the charge on legislation that helps artists, entertainers, and venues meet the needs of their fans, including the Save Our Stages Act and the Fans First Act,” said Cornyn. “I want to thank the Recording Academy for honoring me, and I look forward to continue to work on behalf of performers and fans across Texas and the nation.”

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the Recording Academy, an organization that uplifts performers, songwriters, and other music professionals in our country,” said Klobuchar. “Music has the power to bring us together and it is something we can never take for granted. That’s why I fought to pass the bipartisan Save Our Stages Act with Senator Cornyn to ensure independent arts venues survived the pandemic, and why we are working together to improve the ticketing experience with the Fans First Act. There’s nothing like live music and concerts, and I remain committed to ensuring artists can continue to share their music with the fans who love it.”
