"I'm truly honored to be named a Kennedy Center honoree along with the other esteemed artists named this year.
And to have my name added to the illustrious roster of outstanding musicians that have already been so honored is very meaningful to me.
But to be chosen for this special award essentially for doing what I love most amazes me more than anything." - Billy Joel
