Big & Rich To Receive CRS 2013 Artist Humanitarian Award

Big & Rich To Receive CRS 2013 Artist Humanitarian Award For Their Charitable Endeavors

 
PRLog - Nov. 5, 2012 - (Nashville, Tenn. – Nov. 5, 2012)  Warner Music Nashville duo Big & Rich has been announced as the recipient of the CRS 2013 Artist Humanitarian Award, to be presented at Country Radio Seminar on Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013.

Big & Rich’s charitable endeavors date back more than a decade and are too numerous to mention individually. Their humanitarian efforts have ranged from visiting individual patients in hospitals, to staging benefit concerts for the Country Music Hall of Fame and the 173rd Airborne Memorial, to their well-documented U.S. and international outreach.  The duo has made a point throughout their career to help underprivileged children and families in struggling countries like Uganda, Sudan, Haiti and Kenya, among others.

St. Jude Children's Hospital, Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, the 173rd Airborne Memorial Fund, Project Clean Water, Nashville’s Mt. View elementary school, the Special Olympics, Vanderbilt Hospital, Second Harvest Food Bank and the Nashville Symphony are just a few of the causes the chart-topping, Grammy-nominated duo have donated their charitable efforts to.

“Big Kenny Alphin and John Rich individually and collectively have used their success to set a personal example for all of us to follow as humanitarians,” says CRS Executive Director Bill Mayne. “Their selfless contributions have gone a long way to help make life better for countless men, women, and children, both today and tomorrow.”

Big & Rich will receive the CRS 2013 Artist Humanitarian Award at 10:30 a.m. in the Nashville Convention Center, immediately following the CRS Keynote Address.  

CRS 2013 is held Feb. 27 – March 1, 2013, in downtown Nashville, Tenn.  $499 Regular Rate registration is now available at www.CountryRadioSeminar.com.
