Trace Adkins Receives Humanitarian Award at Country Radio Seminar

The annual Country Radio Seminar moved into Nashville this week, bringing with it several Country Music stars. Each year, the CRS awards one artist with the title of Artist Humanitarian of the Year for their charitable work and willingness to give back to others.

This year, Trace Adkins was honored as the Country Radio Broadcasters’ Artist Humanitarian of the Year. Presenting the award was last year’s recipient, Randy Owen, formerly of supergroup Alabama. Adkins has performed for US troops and their families on two USO tours in Iraq as well as Afghanistan. 
Additionally, Adkins supports a number of charities including the Food, Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network and the Wounded Warrior Project. Adkins was very humbled yet incredibly honored to receive the award.
"I do what I can,” Adkins said. “It's miniscule, it seems...We just try to help out when we see needs. I'm not deserving of this."
Following the announcement of the award, a video chronicled the career of Adkins and his charitable endeavors, but was cut short by a technical difficulty. Adkins jumped in saying, "That's embarrassing enough. Thank you very much."
