As if we needed another reason to love Gary, Jay, and Joe Don!
Rascal Flatts have always been very involved in various charities throughout their career, and this year they are being honored at the Country Radio Seminar on February 22nd as the 2012 Artist Humanitarian Award recipients.
The trio donated $3 million to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt’s Pediatric Surgery Center in 2010. The super group also serves as spokespersons for the national suicide prevention organization, The Jason Foundation, and have been members of the American Red Cross Celebrity Cabinet for seven years.
CRS Executive Director Bill Mayne stated:
“The board is very pleased to honor Rascal Flatts with the CRS Artist Humanitarian Award. They join a long, distinguished list of celebrities who have received this prestigious award since it was instated in 1990.”
The CRS Artist Humanitarian Award was created to honor country music artists who have displayed extraordinary humanitarian efforts during their career. Past recipients of the award include Reba McEntire, Brad Paisley, Brooks & Dunn, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, among others.
CRS will be held February 22-24 in Nashville. Visit www.countryradioseminar.com for more information.
