LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Bob Dylan will be honored as the 2015 MusiCares person of the year.

A Tuesday news release says the 10-time Grammy-winning singer-songwriter will be honored at the foundation's 25th anniversary tribute Feb. 6 in Los Angeles, two days before the Grammys.

Norah Jones; Neil Young; Willie Nelson; Crosby, Stills and Nash; Bonnie Raitt; Eddie Vedder; John Mellencamp; Los Lobos; and Jack White are among the musicians signed up to salute Dylan with versions of his songs at the annual event to benefit The Recording Academy's charitable foundation.

The 73-year-old Dylan helped rewrite rock `n' roll's DNA with songs such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are A-Changin'."

Recent honorees include Young, Carole King, Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney.
