Country Radio Broadcasters (CRB) has named Jason Aldean the 2022 Artist Humanitarian Award recipient. The CRB Artist Humanitarian Award was created in 1990 by the organization’s board to honor those country music artists who have exhibited exceptional humanitarian efforts during their career.
Of the numerous organizations Aldean has supported over the course of his career, those close to him are Atrium Health Navicent Beverly Knight Olsen Children’s Hospital, GA’s Children’s Hospital, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, ACM Lifting Lives, Red Cross, and more.
In his hometown of Macon, Georgia, Aldean has raised over $2 million for Atrium Health Navicent Beverly Knight Olsen Children’s Hospital, GA’s Children’s Hospital. This facility is the region’s only dedicated pediatric hospital, serving Central and South Georgia.
He is also an avid supporter toward the fight against breast cancer, putting the spotlight on Susan G. Komen chapters across the country. For over a decade he has supported the foundation, raising more than $4.1 million through ticket sales and events.
After the tragic shooting that took place at Las Vegas’s Route 91 Festival, where he was headlining, Aldean funded the six-day triumph over tragedy workshop, led by the onsite foundation at their emotional wellness retreat center in Tennessee. It is the first of its kind, specifically designated for those who were at Route 91 Harvest music festival.
“Jason Aldean doesn’t have to brag about his songs or his concert tours. They speak for themselves,” CRS/CRB Board President Kurt Johnson shares. “He also doesn’t call attention to his massive philanthropic work. So we will. Join us at CRS as we shine a light on all the good that Jason does and the good people he supports.”
The multi-Platinum entertainer will be recognized with the Artist Humanitarian Award during CRS Honors on Wednesday, Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. Following his award presentation, Aldean will reveal the Country Radio Hall of Fame Class of 2022 inductees, who will be honored during the annual Country Radio Hall of Fame Ceremony on June 30, 2022, at the Virgin Hotel.
