Dierks Bentley to Receive CRS Artist Humanitarian Award

December 7, 2017

The Country Radio Broadcasters have just announced that Dierks Bentley will be the recipient of the CRS 2018 Artist Humanitarian Award. The honor will be presented to the country singer by the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. 

The CRS Artist Humanitarian Award was created by the board of the organization in 1990. It honors country music artists "who have exhibited exceptional humanitarian efforts" throughout their career.

Among others, Bentley joins past recipients including Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Zac Brown, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Brooks & Dunn, and Charlie Daniels.

The "What The Hell Did I Say" singer's dedication to charitable initiatives has helped him raise over $4 million. Events such as Bentley's 'Miles & Music For Kids' all-star motorcycle ride and the Country Cares Concert he hosted in Arizona, are just a few examples of why he is well deserving of this award.

Dierks Bentley will be recognized at Country Radio Seminar 2018 on February 5 in Nashville.
