Autry, Blind Boys Get Lifetime Achievement Grammys
In addition, George Avakian, Elliott Carter and Allen Toussaint will be honored with the Trustees Award, and Clarence "Leo" Fender and Universal Audio will receive the Technical Grammy Award.
The Lifetime Achievement Award honors artistic contributions to the recording medium; the Trustees Award is for contributions to the music industry in a non-recording capacity. The awards are decided by a vote of The Recording Academy's National Board of Trustees.
Technical Grammy recipients are determined by the Trustees and a vote of the Record Academy's Producers & Engineers Wing Advisory Council and Chapter committees
