Rascal Flatts receives Humanitarian Award from CRS
Rascal Flatts - Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney- were honored this morning with the CRS 2012 Artist Humanitarian Award at the opening session of Country Radio Seminar being held in Nashville.
"It's a little uncomfortable to be recognized for something we feel we should be doing," said DeMarcus after the band received their award on stage. "We have been so blessed with an amazing career, to pay the blessings forward seemed the most natural thing to do."
The honor was bestowed on behalf of their charitable endeavors with the American Red Cross, The Jason Foundation and Make-A-Wish as well as their continued contributions to the Monroe Carell Jr Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville.
