Alison Krauss, Eagles to Receive Honorary Doctorate Degrees

Alison has earned more Grammy Awards than any other female artist.

Alison Krauss, the Eagles and Ethiopian musician Mulatu Astatke are set to receive honorary doctor of music degrees from Berklee College of Music during the commencement ceremony on May 12 at Boston University’s Agganis Arena, according to Berklee's website. The honorary degrees are being bestowed in recognition of the artists' achievements in music and contributions to American culture.

Alison has earned 27 Grammy Awards throughout her career—more than any female musician in any musical genre. She's also earned eight Country Music Association awards and 14 International Bluegrass Music Association awards.

The Eagles, whose most recently active members are Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Glenn Frey and Timothy B. Schmit, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 and earned six Grammy awards, including 1977's Record of the Year for the signature hit "Hotel California."
