Big & Rich honored for charitable work

WENN

Country singers Big & Rich were the toast of the Country Radio Seminar in Nashville on Friday as they were honored for their philanthropy.

Big Kenny, real name William Kenneth Alphin, and John Rich were presented with the 2013 Artist Humanitarian Award for their tireless efforts and work for charitable organizations, including supporting St. Jude Children's Hospital, the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the 173rd Airborne Memorial.

Accepting the accolade, Rich said, "The only way to do this is by having a great career; thanks to everyone in this room for that."

Big Kenny added, "I am blessed, and I am humbled. I am thankful that I have been able to help in some small ways. Every little act of kindness everyone does, makes our world another step closer to a brighter tomorrow we're thankful to our great creator and all that are here today."
