    The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) will honor Brian Wilson for his musical achievements and support of music education, with the Music for Life award. The Beach Boys will be presented with the award on Jan. 18 at the annual NAMM convention, which is held at the Anaheim Convention Center. This event happens one day before the NAMM show officially opens.

    The Music for Life award is NAMM's highest honor and was created to recognize individuals and organizations who demonstrate support of promoting music education and creating more active music-makers. Past recipients include Quincy Jones and Yoko Ono.

    Congrats, Brian!
