Despite receiving four nominations over the years, the Beach Boys have never won a Grammy ... but that's not stopping the Recording Academy from paying tribute to the iconic California surf band.

In a TV special honouring the Beach Boys' music, a star-studded lineup will take to the stage at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on February 8 — three days after the upcoming 65th annual Grammy Awards.

The lineup for A Grammy Tribute to the Beach Boys will be stacked with a mix of modern pop, rock, R&B and country acts influenced by the sunshine pop group, including Norah Jones, Brandi Carlile, Michael McDonald, Lady A, John Legend, Pentatonix and LeAnn Rimes, among others.

Other acts slated to take the stage for the tribute to the group known for hits such as 'Wouldn’t It Be Nice,' 'God Only Knows' and 'Kokomo' include Beck, Little Big Town, Weezer, Fall Out Boy, Mumford & Sons, My Morning Jacket, Charlie Puth, St. Vincent, Hanson and Take 6.

The group received a lifetime achievement award from the Recording Academy in 2001.

Singer Brian Wilson was also named MusiCares person of the year in 2005.

Five Beach Boys recordings have also been voted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, which serves as a second chance for the Grammys to reward worthy records they may have missed the first time.
