Lady Antebellum to Receive CRS 2015 Artist Humanitarian Award
Lady Antebellum performed for the Country Radio Seminar New Faces show in 2009, just after their self-titled debut album hit No. 1 on the charts. Now, the trio, made up of Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott, will return to CRS, this time to receive the 2015 Artist Humanitarian Award.
The honor is being given to the group in recognition of their numerous altruistic contributions, including supporting various children's charities, such as St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Children's Miracle Network and Vanderbilt Children's Hospital, along with their recent 7FOR7 project, during which they fulfilled wishes for fans for seven days.
"It is always humbling and inspiring to learn of the great work that country artists do behind the scenes to share the many blessings and gifts that come with fame and stardom," CRS President Charlie Morgan says. "I would argue no format has a more generous group of artists than we do, and at CRS 2015, we will pay special tribute to one of the best, Lady Antebellum, with our Artist Humanitarian Award."
The threesome will also be the featured panelists on 'How 3 Became 1: Lady Antebellum,' scheduled for Feb. 26 at 10 AM.
Keith Urban will be speaking during CRS 2015 as well, as the event's featured speaker. The 'Somewhere in My Car' singer will share about his own experiences in a seminar entitled 'Keith Urban: Being Present.'
Tickets are on sale now for CRS 2015, which will be held Feb. 25-27 in downtown Nashville. More information, including registration details, is available here.
