Brad Paisley was presented with the prestigious Harmony Award by the Nashville Symphony in a special ceremony on Saturday (Dec. 14).

It took place at the 29th annual Symphony Ball, ‘A Midwinter Night’s Dream,’ held at Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville, and former Senator Bill Frist had the chance to applaud Paisley in his dedication to music and serving others — which is exactly what the annual Harmony Award is in place for.

The prestigious prize is always given to someone who exemplifies musical excellence, embodies the spirit of community, contributes to Nashville’s vibrant music industry and makes a difference in people’s lives.

Paisley has certainly made a difference in people’s lives through initiatives like the Water=Hope Campaign, and most recently, Live Beyond, a Nashville nonprofit with a mission to provide medical care, clean water, nutritional support and development activities to impoverished communities in Haiti.

After accepting the award, Paisley treated the audience to his No. 1 hit ‘Southern Comfort Zone,’ which also included the Nashville Symphony orchestra and chorus. He followed up that performance with ‘I’m Gonna Miss Her,’ ‘I’m Still a Guy’ and then, appropriately, ‘I’ll Be Home for Christmas.’

The Harmony Award is no stranger in country music — past recipients include Taylor Swift (honored in 2011) and 2012 honoree, Keith Urban.
