Dierks Bentley To Receive CRB Artist Humanitarian Award

Dierks Bentley has been named the recipient of the CRS 2018 Artist Humanitarian Award. He will be recognized at Country Radio Seminar 2018 following the opening ceremonies on Monday, Feb. 5, 2018.

Bentley has demonstrated his dedication to giving back through many charitable initiatives and events, raising over four million dollars for charities through his “Miles & Music For Kids” all-star motorcycle ride and concert, including Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country. In 2013 he partnered with KMLE and KAFF as they organized and hosted the Country Cares Concert in Arizona, raising more than half a million dollars for the families of the Granite Mountain Hotshots. Bentley has also put the spotlight on local Nashville non-profits such as Safe Haven Family Shelter, as his video for “Riser” magnified a true story and the struggles of a formerly homeless mother.

The CRB Artist Humanitarian Award was created in 1990 by the organization’s board to honor artists who have exhibited exceptional humanitarian efforts during their career.  Past recipients have included Zac Brown, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Brooks & Dunn, Reba McEntire, Vince Gill, Garth Brooks, and Charlie Daniels, among others.

Country Radio Seminar 2018 will be held February 5-7, 2018 at the Omni Nashville.
