Kevin Mazur/Getty ImagesPearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready will receive the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award at the 2018 MusiCares Concert for Recovery in recognition of his efforts to help those struggling with addiction.

The show, which takes place May 10 in Seattle, will features performances from Slash, Duff McKagan, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Heart's Nancy Wilson, Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin and Social Distortion frontman Mike Ness. McCready himself will also perform to close the night.

"Recovery is a journey that you take each day, and mine has been affirming, from a musical standpoint and a community perspective," says McCready in a statement. "To be able to raise funds for MusiCares and the critical addiction recovery work they do for music people across the country all year long is humbling, and it speaks to the way we can come together to help those in need."

Tickets to the fundraising event range from $250 to $5,000. For more info, you can email Wynnie Wynn at
