Sir Paul McCartney is to be honoured with the Outstanding Contribution To Music at next year's (08) Brit Awards, after accepting organisers' second offer of the prize. The ex-Beatle has previously turned down the gong after claiming his acceptance of it would indicate his music career was over - but after seeing younger rockers Oasis take the accolade at 2007's ceremony, the 65-year-old has changed his mind. MCCartney - who already holds a Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution for his work with the Fab Four - will now be presented with the statuette at the London event in February. Another winner on the night will be pop newcomer Adele Adkins, who will be given the Critics' Choice prize - a new award created to encourage and launch new talent.
