The five-time Grammy winner, who opened up last year about his battle with Alzheimer's disease, is currently on his Goodbye tour, which concludes March 24 in Silver Springs, Fla. See the remaining tour dates here.
The Lifetime Achievement Award is given to individuals who have made "contributions of outstanding artistic significance to the field of recording." Glen's fellow country legend George Jones will also be honored, as will the Allman Brothers Band, Diana Ross, Antonio Carlos Jobim, the Memphis Horns and Gil Scott-Heron.
The Arkansas-born singer-guitarist took home a total of four Grammys in 1967, earning two each for the iconic hits 'By the Time I Get to Phoenix' and 'Gentle on My Mind.' Those two songs, along with 'Wichita Lineman' are also in the Grammy Hall of Fame. In 1968, he earned the Album of the Year trophy for 'By the Time I Get to Phoenix.'
George Jones is the recipient of two Grammys (for 'Choices' and 'He Stopped Loving Her Today'). The latter tune and the hit single 'She Thinks I Still Care' are both in the Grammy Hall of Fame.
Blake Shelton is up for two Grammys: Best Country Solo Performance for 'Honey Bee' and Best Country Album for 'Red River Blue,' and the Band Perry are nominated for Best New Artist.
