Between his solo work and his career with the Eagles, Don Henley is the proud owner of eight Grammys, but now he's about to get another honor from the Recording Academy.  On April 13th, Henley will travel to Washington, D.C. to accept a special trophy during the 10th Annual Grammys on the Hill Awards.

  He'll receive the inaugural Recording Artists' Coalition Award for his work fighting for artists' rights. 

It's no surprise that Henley's receiving this award, given that he co-founded the Recording Artists' Coalition back in 2000 with his friend and former backup singer, Sheryl Crow.  The coalition is a non-profit advocacy organization that works to change unfair recording industry practices and protects the rights of music makers.

Others being honored at the same ceremony include Vice President Joe Biden and Tennessee Senator Bob Corker.(via ABC News Radio)
