Brad Paisley has won numerous awards throughout his career, and he’s about to receive another one — this time from his hometown of Nashville, Tenn. The singer will be honored with the 2013 Harmony Award from the Nashville Symphony this December.

Each year, the Nashville Symphony presents the Harmony Award to an individual who “exemplifies the harmonious spirit of Nashville’s thriving musical community” — a description which fully embodies the country star.

“As one of country music’s biggest stars, Brad has made a huge impact by staying true to his artistic and personal vision,” says Alan Valentine, CEO and President of the Nashville Symphony. “We can’t think of anyone today more deserving of this award, which over the years has honored the many artists who’ve helped make Nashville the thriving creative capital that it is today. Without a doubt, Brad’s talents and contribution to the music of Nashville have been outstanding.”

Paisley will receive the award at the 29th annual Symphony Ball, which will take place at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center on Dec. 14. Not only will the singer attend, but he’ll also treat fellow attendees to a special performance, playing one of his hits with the Nashville Symphony. That sounds like a musical treat for symphony lovers and country music fans.

The ‘Wheelhouse’ star joins a long list of distinguished past recipients of the Nashville Symphony’s Harmony Award, including Taylor Swift (who was honored in 2011) and last year’s honoree, Keith Urban.

Additional music greats who have been awarded in years past: Amy Grant, LeAnn Rimes, Michael W. Smith, Mike & Linda Curb, Lyle Lovett, Trisha Yearwood, Dolly Parton, the Judds, Steve Winwood, Vince Gill, Wynonna Judd, Naomi Judd, Chet Atkins, Martina McBride, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood and Marty Stuart.
