Nile Rodgers has been tapped to receive the Chairman’s Award for Sustained Creative Achievements at the upcoming Music Business Association awards. The show will take place on May 17 at the Omni Nashville Hotel.
The organization confirmed the news of Rodgers’ award, noting:
“Nile’s music truly stands the test of time. He not only helped define the sound of pop, disco, and hip-hop in the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s but also continues his prolific work on hits with modern artists such as Daft Punk, Avicii, Disclosure and Sam Smith, not to mention his own upcoming album with Chic,” said Music Biz Chairman Fred Beteille. “His longevity and repeated successes make him the ideal candidate for our Chairman’s Award. I’m honored and excited to recognize him for his important contributions to music over the past four decades.”
