The recipients announced Thursday will be honored during a gala ceremony in early December.

Ronstadt was one of the faces of American music in the 1970s and 80s, landing on the cover of Time magazine in 1977. Her four-decade career moved smoothly between country, pop and rock with occasional deviations into Mexican folk songs. In 2011, she announced her retirement from singing, citing the advancing effects of Parkinson’s disease.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Ronstadt professed to a fairly ambivalent relationship to the collection of prizes, awards and honors she has accrued. “I don’t think a lot about prizes,” she said. “You do the work for the work.”
