Rascal Flatts Presented CRS Artist Humanitarian Award

Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney of Rascal Flatts were presented the CRS 2012 Artist Humanitarian award during ceremonies Wednesday (Feb. 22) at the Country Radio Seminar in Nashville. The band members were honored for their charitable activities supporting the American Red Cross, the Jason Foundation, the Make-a-Wish Foundation and the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville. “It’s a little uncomfortable to be recognized for something we feel we should be doing,” DeMarcus said. “We have been so blessed with an amazing career, to pay the blessings forward seemed the most natural thing to do.” CRS Radio Humanitarian awards were also presented to radio stations KMOK/Lewiston, Idaho (small market), WIVK/Knoxville, Tenn. (medium market) and WLHK/Indianapolis (large market).
