Hank Williams Jr. has always been a huge supporter of the military and on New Year's Eve he was honored with the 2013 OTA Patriot Award from Operation Troop Aid to honor that support.
“I am extremely honored to award Hank Williams Jr. the 2013 Patriot Award,” OTA founder and Executive Director Mark Woods said in a press release when it was announced that Hank would be receiving the 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.”
Williams received the award during his headlining gig at Nashville’s New Year’s Eve Bash.
Other country stars who have received the award in the past include Toby Keith, Darryl Worley, Aaron Tippin, Charlie Danies, and Mark Wills.
