Rock icon Tom Petty has created such hits, as "Free Fallin'," "Don't Do Me Like That" and "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around," a Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers' duet with Stevie Nicks. With such attainment, he is considered as the next recipient of the Century Award, Billboard's highest honor for creative achievement, at this year's Billboard Music Awards.

Speaking on his getting the award Petty says "This award comes at a particularly nice time as The Heartbreakers and I go into the 30th year of our career. I'm very honored that Billboard has acknowledged me." The awards reportedly will air live on the Fox network from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Dec. 6. Congrats bro.
