The Recording Academy announced Thursday that legendary conjunto accordionist Flaco Jimenez will receive a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award. The list includes George Harrison, the Bee Gees, Buddy Guy and the Louvin Brothers.
“It’s hard to say thanks to everybody that’s helped me out on my long road,” said Flaco Jimenez. “I’ve enjoyed every mile of it. I’m still enjoying it. If my health is OK, I’m going to keep on playing. That’s my life.”
