ROBERT PLANT, known as much as the legendary singer for the legendary LED ZEPPELIN as he is for his fascinating and always-morphing solo career, has been selected to receive one of the UK's most prestigious awards. The Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association of the UK is that group's highest honor, and is given to a British artist for their outstanding contribution to the Americana genre over the span of a career. The AMA-UK is a professional trade association representing and advocating for the voice of American Roots music in the UK. Mr. Plant will receive the award at the UK Americana Awards Show that will take place on February 1, 2018 in East London. Plant's latest solo album 'Carry Fire' is his first since 2014's 'lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar,' and was recorded at various studios in the London area, and once again features his band, The Sensational Shape Shifters. Mr. Plant has managed to carve out a very unique solo career since Led Zep called it quits in 1979, and he is always following his 'Muse,' exploring, learning about, and writing and performing music that piques his interest. One of the more fascinating aspects of his solo career (IMO) is his ability to 're-imagine' Zeppelin classics, and present those songs in new and compelling versions. Rock On Robert!
