Rock icon Billy Joel is set to be honoured with America's prestigious Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.

The Piano Man star has been selected as the 2014 recipient of the Library of Congress award, which is named after iconic composer George Gershwin and celebrates the lifetime achievements of a living musical artist.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member will be presented with the accolade at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. in November.

Previous recipients include Paul Simon, Sir Paul MCCartney, Stevie Wonder and Carole King, who made history last year, as the first woman to ever claim the Gershwin Prize.
