Toby Keith will be adding another honor to his already crowded collection with his receipt of the 2018 Harmony Award, which he will receive on Dec. 8 at Nashville's Schermerhorn Symphony Center.

The award is presented annually by the Nashville Symphony to recognize an individual who exemplifies the harmonious spirit of Nashville's musical community.

"Toby Keith has the unique ability to capture the essence of life's most passionate and memorable moments through music, as evidenced by an incredible career that has produced hit music every year over the past three decades," Katie Crumbo and Laurie Seabury, chairmen of the 2018 Symphony Ball fundraiser, say in a statement.

"More than just an outstanding singer and songwriter with a legendary onstage energy, Toby has made selfless contributions to the world around him — including scores of performances for U.S. service personnel abroad and assisting the families of children with critical illnesses through the Toby Keith Foundation — that prove his impact reaches well beyond music."

"I'm so appreciative of this honor given to me by the Nashville Symphony," Keith notes in return. "It means a great deal to me."

Past recipients of the Harmony Award include Chet Atkins, Rascal Flatts, Bela Fleck, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Wynonna and Naomi Judd, Miranda Lambert, Lyle Lovett, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley, Dolly Parton, LeAnn Rimes, Michael W. Smith, Marty Stuart, Taylor Swift, Steven Tyler, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Steve Winwood and Trisha Yearwood.
