Paul McCartney is MusiCares Person of the Year

It's been a pretty good year for Paul McCartney: The Beatles' album "1" rose to the top of iTunes last week (but who's that surprised?), he's set to marry Nancy Shevell, and now he's also been named MusiCares 2012 Person of the Year.

The organization, which is in place to help out musicians in times of financial, medical and/or personal need, hosts a benefit gala ahead of the Grammys. McCartney will be honored at the event, scheduled for February 10, 2012, two days ahead of the 54th Grammy Awards.

The honor is being bestowed for both McCartney's legendary achievements in the music biz and also for his charitable work, a statement from The Recording Academy says.
