Fleetwood Mac keyboardist honored with lifetime achievement award for songwriting

Fleetwood Mac keyboardist Christine McVie was honored with a lifetime achievement at the 2014 Ivor Novello songwriting awards in London on Thursday.

The BBC reports McVie played with Fleetwood Mac for 28 years and wrote some of their most famous songs, including “Don't Stop” and “Little Lies.”

Picking up her award, McVie confirmed she had reunited with Fleetwood Mac after a more than 15-year absence.

"We are in the process of making another studio album, which should be out next year," she said.

The annual Ivor Novello Awards, now in their 59th year, are voted for by songwriters.

This fall, Mcvie will join Fleetwood Mac for an extensive North American tour.

The band’s The On With The Show tour sees the reunion of the group’s hugely successful mid-1970s lineup, which cranked out hit albums like 1975’s self-titled release, 1977’s “Rumours” and 1979’s “Tusk.”
