US library honors Paul McCartney for pop music
WASHINGTON (AP) - June 1, 2010 -- When it comes to popular music, it doesn't get much bigger than the tunes Paul McCartney has written and sung with the Beatles and on his own.
The knighted 67-year-old pop star will be honored with Washington's highest award for pop music this week by the Library of Congress.
On Tuesday, he was scheduled to discuss his first major lifetimeachievement award from the U.S. government at the library.
President Barack Obama will present the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song on Wednesday at a concert in the East Room of the White House.
The Jonas Brothers, Faith Hill, Stevie Wonder and Jerry Seinfeld are part of an all-star lineup that will honor McCartney. The concert will be televised July 28 nationwide on PBS.
