She Rocks Awards Recognize Music Industry Leaders

Among music industry leaders honored at this year’s She Rocks Awards held in January were musicians Pat Benatar; Melissa Etheridge; The B-52s’ Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson; Exene Cervenka, vocalist for the punk band X; Jean Millington Adamian, June Millington, Brie Howard Darling, Patti Quatro Ericson, and Alice de Buhr of the band Fanny.

A Grammy and Academy award-winning musician, Etheridge has been tearing up the charts since 1988 when the lead single, “Bring Me Some Water,” from her very first album, was nominated for a Grammy. Pierson and Wilson, original members of The B-52s, known for hits like “Roam” and “Love Shack,” are celebrating that band’s 40th Anniversary. Benatar has received four Grammy Awards during her long and inspiring career.

Held during the January NAMM Show for the sixth consecutive year, the She Rocks Awards paid tribute to women who display leadership and stand out in the music industry. Previous recipients include Colbie Caillat, Sheila E., and The Bangles.
