Kenny Chesney was honored with the Country Radio Broadcasters’ Humanitarian of the Year Award yesterday (Wednesday, Feb. 19th) during this year's annual Country Radio Seminar underway in Nashville.
He said, “I have to tell you, I have a lot of emotions standing up here. I am embarrassed and uncomfortable, but God has given me the gift of communicating with people through music and that’s given me a unique platform to help . . . "
Kenny has helped those in need through his own Spread the Love Foundation, which benefitted amputee survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing, as well as his Songs for the Saints album and the Love For Love City Fund which provided disaster relief to the U.S. Virgin Islands after Hurricanes Irma and Maria, in addition to aiding many other charities.
