The Eagles are amongst the luminaries selected to receive this year's Kennedy Center Honors.
The gala will take place on December 6th, and will be broadcast on CBS on December 29.
George Lucas, Carole King, Rita Moreno, Cicely Tyson, and conductor Seiji Ozawa will join The Eagles at the Honors. President Barack Obama is expected to attend, along with first lady Michelle Obama. The Obamas also will host the honorees at the White House before the gala performance.
The music of The Eagles, "...has endured as the quintessential American rock and roll sound for generations," said Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein.
