CRS To Recognize Big & Rich
CRS has announced that the recipients of the 2013 CRS Artist Humanitarian Award are Big & Rich. Big & Rich have been helping charitable organizations for over 10 years now. 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 consistently helps underprivileged children and families in countries like Uganda, Sudan, Haiti, and Kenya.
St. Jude Children's Hospital, Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, the 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.
CRS Executive Director Bill Mayne says, “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. Their selfless contributions have gone a long way to help make life better for countless men, women, and children, both today and tomorrow.”
The award will be presented at the Country Radio Seminar on Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013. 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.
