NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The "King of Country" was honored Tuesday night in Music City with a little help from some of his big name friends.

Country music superstar George Strait received a career achievement award from the Country Radio Hall of Fame, and many of his peers joined to pay tribute.

"You're in your own league. You set a great example for all of us, and congratulations," said country star Martina McBride.

Strait thanked the organization and his friends for the tribute.

"One of the greatest things about being in this business, the country music business - the best business in the world - is getting to meet and be with people like that and people like you in this room tonight," Strait said.

McBride wasn't the only one to salute Strait. Alan Jackson, Ronnie Dunn, Reba McEntire and Tim McGraw all recorded their well-wishes for a video tribute.
