George’s ceremony will be held during the 10th annual Billboard Touring Awards.
The Legend of Live Award is given to artists who have made an enduring impact on the live touring industry.
George, who has toured steadily for the past 30 years, will be the first country artist to receive the honor. Past recipients include Sir Elton John, rock bands Journey and Rush and last year’s honoree, Neil Diamond.
Congratulations to George on this well-deserved award.
