COUNTRY RADIO BROADCASTERS (CRB) will honor BLUE CHAIR/WARNER/WEA’s KENNY CHESNEY with its 2020 Artist Humanitarian Award. The award recognizes Country music artists who have exhibited exceptional humanitarian efforts. In CHESNEY’s case, those efforts have included spearheading the rebuilding of ST. JOHN following the devastation of Hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017. Previous recipients have included BLAKE SHELTON, DIERKS BENTLEY, LADY ANTEBELLUM, CARRIE UNDERWOOD, RASCAL FLATTS and others.

CHESNEY will receive the honor during the 2nd annual “WARNER MUSIC NASHVILLE (WMN) KICKOFF LUNCHEON” at COUNTRY RADIO SEMINAR (CRS) on WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 19TH, 2020. More WMN artists will be announced for the performance lineup at a later date.

“It’s as if this award was created for KENNY CHESNEY,” CRS/CRB Board Pres. KURT JOHNSON said. “Artists with his career span are rare. Among them, artists who do as much good as he does, for as long as he has, without calling attention to it, are particularly singular.”

“I was raised to lend a hand where I could, but also to reach out quietly and keep the focus on the people who need the help,” CHESNEY said. “I’ve always tried to do the right thing where I could, but this award really belongs to all the people I’ve met over the years who are rebuilding their lives, their homes, their world. Watching them come together – the courage, the hours and strength they give to these things – my award is getting to be inspired by what these people have
