Country music star and Army veteran Craig Morgan was honored Saturday with one of the force’s highest civilian awards.

Morgan, who is known for hits like "That's What I Love About Sunday" and "Redneck Yacht Club," served in the Army for nearly 20 years.

He was awarded the Army's Outstanding Civilian Service Medal and told Pete Hegseth on "Fox & Friends" that he never thought he'd get a civilian award.

"I was honored and proud to accept that medal on behalf of all the people that work tirelessly and effortlessly for our men and women serving," he said.

Morgan said that he was a forward observer and fire support specialist during his time in the Army.

He recently finished his 10th USO tour, one reason why he received the award Saturday.

"It's a very humbling feeling," Morgan said. "When you're around those people that serve, they have a special gene in them, this sense of service. It's just such an honor to be around them and to share that.”
