Lady Antebellum to receive humanitarian award

Country stars Lady Antebellum are set to be honored for their philanthropic efforts with Country Radio Seminar's 2015 Artist Humanitarian Award.

The Need You Now hitmakers will be feted for their support of various children's charities, such as St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Children's Miracle Network and Vanderbilt Children's Hospital, as well as their work for the 7FOR7 project, during which they fulfill wishes for fans for seven days.


CRS president Charlie Morgan praises the trio for its charitable work in a statement which reads: "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.


"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."


During the weekend-long event in Nashville, Tennessee next February (15), Keith Urban will be the featured speaker, sharing his personal career stories in a seminar entitled Keith Urban: Being Present.
