Bob Dylan's MusiCares event will be star-studded affair

A host of musicians -- and even a former president -- will salute Bob Dylan next month as the 2015 MusiCares Person of the Year.

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter will present Dylan with the honor, which is handed out in Los Angeles the week leading up to the Grammy Awards.

Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nelson, Jack White, Jackson Browne, Alanis Morissette, Neil Young, Beck, Norah Jones, the Black Keys, Stills & Nash and John Mellencamp have all signed on to pay tribute to Dylan on Feb. 6 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Past MusiCares Person of the Year honorees include Bono, Sting, James Taylor, Gloria Estefan, Tony Bennett, Aretha Franklin and Billy Joel.

The 57th annual Grammys Awards, set to air live on CBS, will take place on Feb. 8 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
