Superstar Kane Brown has been named the recipient of the Country Radio Seminar (CRS) 2024 Artist Humanitarian Award.
The Artist Humanitarian Award was created in 1990 by the Country Radio Broadcasters’ (CRB) Board to honor a country artist whose philanthropic efforts have significantly improved the effectiveness and impact of the causes they support. This individual not only lends their name and influence but also dedicates their time, talent and resources.
Brown’s philanthropic endeavors have focused on improving the lives of underprivileged youth. His contributions include supporting the Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA). Brown has personally funded opportunities for 16 youth and four adults from the local BGCA chapter, providing backstage access, sharing his story, arranging dinner and gifting tickets to his shows. He even continued these efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic by offering a safe suite experience for the children and their chaperones.
Brown also donated a dollar from each ticket sold on his NBA arena tour to the renovation of a BGCA gym in Cleveland, Ohio, and collaborated with Lowe’s for the rebuilding of a BGCA in his hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Additionally, the proceeds from his single “Worldwide Beautiful” and his Kane Krunch cereal were also donated to the BGCA.
In October 2022, Brown was awarded the BGCA’s Champion of Youth accolade in recognition of his significant contributions.
“CRS is proud to recognize Kane Brown with our highest Artist Humanitarian honor. Kane ‘walks the walk’ in supporting underprivileged youth in the U.S. through a deep commitment to the Boys & Girls Club national organization. We are inspired by his year-round generosity of time, effort and resources. Kane continues to be a daily difference-maker in the lives of youths,” says Beverlee Brannigan, CRS/CRB Awards Committee Chair.
He will be recognized during CRS Honors on Thursday, Feb. 29 at 3 p.m. during CRS 2024.
