It's only been a little over a week since Justin Moore won the ACM for New Artist of the Year, and now he's got something else to celebrate!

Justin was honored as the “Congressman Bill and Beverly Young Humanitarian of the Year” for service and commitment to the morale and welfare of military families through the Crown Royal “Your Hero’s Name Here” contest. The Congressional Gala in Washington, D.C., was last Wednesday night.

Justin was modest about the honor -

“Although extremely grateful, I feel a little uncomfortable being honored at an event where there are decorated war heroes present,” Moore said. “I feel that my contributions are much less significant than theirs … they are the true American heroes. However, I’m thrilled to know that what I do with the AFF has helped, and that it is appreciated by all."


He does come from a military family, both of Justin's grandfathers served in the armed forces.
