Hank Williams Jr. was surprised with a plaque this month to commemorate over five decades of success. He accepted the recognition during a tour stop in Austin, Texas, on Saturday (Aug. 13).

With his 37th studio album, It’s About Time, Williams achieved the highest peak position of his career with a No. 2 debut on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart when the project was released earlier this year.

Members of management and his NASH Icon Records/BMLG label home were on site for the presentation. Spotify’s John Marks was also on hand to share that Williams would be added to the New Traditions/Country Heroes playlist.
