Following a long and accomplished career in the industry, Kenny was finally given the coveted award to the delight of the audience and his many fans. Considering Chesney has been churning out hits since 1994, we think the homage is well-deserved!

After Peyton Manning gifted the star the award, he delivered a passionate and emotional acceptance speech praising all the people who helped him make it to the top.

Not only was the 48-year-old message’s incredibly humble, but so was his final parting words to the crowd:

“Thanks for giving me an amazing life.”

Aww… how sweet!

Congrats, Kenny!
