Joan Jett, Sheryl Crow To Be Honored At 60th Annual Clio Awards

Sheryl Crow and Joan Jett will both be receiving honorary Clio Music awards onstage at the upcoming Clio Awards. The global competition—which celebrates the power of music to connect consumers and brands around the world—will recognize this year’s Grand Clio Music winners as part of the 60th annual Clio Awards at the Manhattan Center in New York City on September 25.

Jett will receive the Clio Music Lifetime Achievement Award and will be performing an acoustic version of one her most famous songs. As the leader of the hard-rocking Blackhearts, with whom she has become a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Jett has had eight Platinum and Gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classics “Bad Reputation,” “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll” and “Crimson and Clover.” Her recording of “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” with Carrie Underwood debuted as the theme for Sunday Night Football on NBC last weekend, and she’s lent her classic tunes to memorable commercials for Nike, Target, Volkswagen and Hyundai. 

Crow will receive the Clio Music Impact Award recognizing an artist who has made a significant impact on popular culture by channeling their originality in new ways that simultaneously move their industry forward and bring about social change. She recently joined Citi’s #SeeHerHearHer initiative to advance gender equality in the music industry and will be mentoring an up-and-coming female artist; she has a long history of involvement with a number of important social causes that involve mentorship, support for children, and efforts to protect the planet, including the Natural Resource Defense Council (NRDC), Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), American Red Cross (ARC), World Food Program, and Sandy Hook Promise.  

Billie Eillish, Kesha, Meek Mill, Wu-Tang, Keith Richards, Ariana Grande, A$AP Rocky and Michael Bublé were among the other top artists featured in winning work in the 2019 Clio Music program.
