Rascal Flatts will receive the CRS 2012 Artist Humanitarian Award during Country Radio Seminar on Wednesday, February 22 in Nashville following the event’s keynote address. The band was chosen to receive the honor based on their charitable contributions and humanitarian endeavors throughout their career.
Some of the band’s charitable work includes a donation of $3 million to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt’s Pediatric Surgery Center in 2010; and currently serving as celebrity spokespersons for the national suicide prevention organization and The Jason Foundation. They have been members of the American Red Cross Celebrity Cabinet for the last seven years.
“The board is very pleased to honor Rascal Flatts with the CRS Artist Humanitarian Award,” CRS Executive Director Bill Mayne said. “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 first given out in 1990 to honor country music artists who have shown exceptional humanitarian efforts throughout their career. Tim McGraw  and Faith Hill  received the award last year. Other recipients include Trace Adkins,  Randy Owen , Toby Keith , Brad Paisley , Brooks & Dunn , Reba , Vince Gill , Garth Brooks  and Charlie Daniels , among others.
