McCartney nominated for award in France

PARIS — France's Elysee Palace has said former Beatle Paul McCartney has been nominated for the legion of honor for services to music.

On Tuesday, a presidential spokesman said that 70-year-old McCartney — who sung and co-wrote hits like "Hey Jude" and "Yesterday" — will be decorated at the rank of officer by French President Francois Hollande in a ceremony Saturday in Paris.

McCartney will join the ranks of other singers to have received the honor. Barbra Streisand and Liza Minnelli were similarly honored by former President Nicolas Sarkozy.
