The Recording Academy's Producers & Engineers Wing will celebrate its 10th Anniversary with a Grammy Week event titled "Shaken Rattled & Rolled," honoring the career of producer T Bone Burnett (pictured). Grammy Award-winning artists Elton John and Leon Russell will serve as honorary event co-chairs at the event, which will be held on Wednesday, February 9, 2011, at the Village Recording Studios in Los Angeles.

Grammy Week culminates with the 53rd annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 13, 2011, airing live on the CBS television network at 8 p.m. EST/PST.

"When the Producers & Engineers Wing was established, an essential voice was created for music makers: the voice of those 'behind the glass' that work so diligently to ensure that the quality and integrity of recorded music is captured and preserved," says Neil Portnow, president/CEO of the Recording Academy. "As we celebrate this milestone anniversary, it is only fitting that we pay tribute to one of our industry's finest, T Bone Burnett, whose visionary talent and masterful skills have greatly impacted the landscape of audio production."

Burnett, a 10-time Grammy Award winner and current three-time nominee, has a body of work that spans 40 years. It includes producer credits for artists such as Elvis Costello, Jakob Dylan, Elton John & Leon Russell, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, k.d. lang, John Mellencamp, Willie Nelson, Ralph Stanley, Cassandra Wilson, and countless other great artists. Burnett has also produced the soundtracks for many film projects including Across The Universe; Cold Mountain; Crazy Heart; O Brother, Where Art Thou?; The Big Lebowski; and Walk The Line.
