Over the years, Hicks has received many awards including being inducted into the New Brunswick Country Music Hall of Fame in 1985 and the North American Fiddlers Hall of Fame in 1990. In 2012, he received a Diamond Jubilee Medal. Now he has been named to the Order of New Brunswick.

“I was actually out in the field, mowing our lawn and I saw Vivian [Hicks, his wife] coming with the cell phone,” said Hicks. “I got a call from one of our nominators saying that ‘we just heard that you were chosen for the Order of New Brunswick.'”

Hicks is being recognized for his work preserving and promoting New Brunswick’s musical culture, both within the province and across Canada.

He is also recognized for his work teaching others. Hicks spent 32 years as a science and math teacher, as well as teaching music on his own. His greatest satisfaction was that many of his students continue to play the fiddle and went on to be teachers themselves.

“The thing that has made me the happiest of all is that we’ve been able to get our kind of music to the young people,” he said, adding that he and his wife never had kids of their own, but they considered their students to be their kids.
