Country star Hank Williams, Jr. will ring in 2014 as a winner - he will be honoured for his support of the U.S. military during his New Year's Eve (31Dec13) concert in Nashville, Tennessee.

The singer, who has performed at various military bases over the years, will receive the Patriot Award from officials at the non-profit Operation Troop Aid (OTA) organisation as he headlines the Bash on Broadway show next month (Dec13).

OTA founder and executive director Mark Woods says, "I am extremely honoured to award Hank Williams, Jr. the 2013 Patriot Award. His art, legacy of family and Spirit of Patriotism is exactly why this award exists. He never forgot his roots and why we have the freedom we do in America."

He follows in the footsteps of previous recipients Toby Keith, KISS, Gary Sinise and Charlie Daniels.
