Phil Collins was in Austin, Texas on Wednesday where he was made an honorary Texan.

In case you’re wondering why this British citizen was recognized by the Lone Star State, it’s because he is a big collector of artifacts related to the Alamo. Last year, he donated more than 200 pieces of his collection to the Alamo.

The resolution, approved by the Texas House of Representatives and the Senate, in part reads as follows: “The donation of this phenomenal collection will greatly enhance the experience of visitors to the Alamo, providing them with a greater understanding and appreciation of the famous battle and its place in the arc of history. Phil Collins has long been admired by innumerable fans across Texas for his musical accomplishments, and by sharing his love of our frontier heritage through this superlative gift, he has earned the lasting respect and gratitude of all residents of the Lone Star State.”
