The iconic rock songstress remarked in a press statement, "I'm still collecting my thoughts, but the feeling is surreal. I've always focused on making music for the art of it, and its ability to reach others."
Jett added, "I am truly honored that my music has been recognized by the great rock and roll community that voted me in."
She is the front-woman of the hard rock group The Blackhearts and she holds eight platinum and gold albums to her credit. Her smash hit include "Crimson and Clover," the Top 10 tune "I Hate Myself for Loving You," the fan-favorite "Bad Reputation," as well as her multi-week No. 1 hit "I Love Rock 'N Roll"; moreover, the rock queen is the co-founder of Blackheart Records, which is the first female artist-owned and operated indie record label.
Jett released her Unvarnished album, which was well-received by fans and music critics, including Digital Journal, which marked her first CD in seven years.
This is a long overdue honor for Jett since she served as a role model for countless female musicians in rock and roll.
