Bette Midler received the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award for her skill as a song interpreter, and her friend Stevie Nicks was on hand to perform in her honor. â€œItâ€™s fantastic, â€™cause Bette and I have been friends for a long time,â€ Stevie told reporters on the red carpet, â€œAnd she chose me to sing one of her songs, and I chose â€˜The Rose.â€™â€
Stevie added that she chose that song because of Midlerâ€™s movie of the same name. â€œI thought that [she] did such an amazing job when she did that movie,â€ said Stevie. Stevie also told reporters that Fleetwood Mac will tour in 2013 and will begin rehearsals in January.
