(Radio.com) Justin Moore has a lot to celebrate as of late. The newly-crowned Academy of Country Music's new artist of the year, he has also been named humanitarian of the year by the Armed Forces Foundation.

Moore and Big Machine Label Group President/CEO Scott Borchetta were honored as the "Congressman Bill and Beverly Young Humanitarian of the Year" for their service and commitment to the morale and welfare of military families through the Crown Royal "Your Hero's Name Here" contest. Moore and Borchetta were honored during the 10th annual Congressional Gala in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday night (April 9).

"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.

"Both of my grandpas served in our military and they, along with my parents, instilled in me what our servicemen and women mean to us. It was an honor to tell some of them face to face last night. God bless our troops and God bless America." more on this story
