Not only are Big & Rich great musicians, but now we know that they are also great humanitarians. The duo is scheduled to receive the CRS 2013 Artist Humanitarian Award which will be presented at The Country Radio Seminar on Feb. 27, 2013.

The singers “charitable endeavors date back more than a decade, ranging from visiting individual patients in hospitals, to staging benefit concerts for the Country Music Hall of Fame.” According to a press release by the organization, “they have also performed at the 173rd Airborne Memorial.” Another thing that is important to them is helping “underprivileged children and families in struggling countries like Uganda, Sudan, Haiti and Kenya.” The St. Jude Children’s Hospital and the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence are just a couple of the other projects that are near and dear to Big & Rich.

CRS Executive Director Bill Mayne says that “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.” He goes on to say that “their selfless contributions have gone a long way to help make life better for countless men, women, and children, both today and tomorrow.”
