Country music superstar, Blake Shelton, will
headline the luncheon that will kick-off what is expected to be one of
the most exciting Country Radio Seminars to date.  More WMN artists for
the luncheon will be announced soon. 

CRB, Inc.® also announced Blake Shelton has been named the recipientof the CRS 2019 Artist Humanitarian Award and will be honored during the Opening Day luncheon. The CRB Artist Humanitarian Award was
created in 1990 by the organization’s board to honor those Country
music artists who have exhibited exceptional humanitarian efforts during
their career.  Past recipients of the annual award have included Dierks
Bentley, Lady Antebellum, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw,andFaith Hill, Trace Adkins, Randy Owen, Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Brooks & Dunn, Reba McEntire, Vince Gill, Garth Brooks, and Charlie Daniels, among others. 

Shelton has demonstrated his dedication to giving back through many
charitable initiatives and events.  In May 2013, Blake hosted “Healing
In The Heartland,” a benefit concert for those affected by the numerous
tornadoes that ravaged the country.  The event was broadcast on NBC and
more than $6 million dollars was raised for the American Red Cross of
Oklahoma.  In September 2016, Blake donated $600,000 to the Jimmy
Everest Children’s Hospital in Oklahoma City, OK. and in September 2017,
he hosted “Hand In Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief,” a multi-city
telethon that broadcast on all major television networks.  So far, more
than $50 million has been raised for relief efforts for hurricane Harvey
and Irma. In Sept. 2017, the Oklahomanative opened his Ole Red
Bar & Grill in his hometown of Tishomingo, OK. All proceeds raised
from his performance that evening were donated to a local charity in

Music Nashville is very excited to kick-off CRS activities with an
exciting and diverse line up of our amazing artists,”
said WMN Chairman & CEO John Esposito.“I’m
proud of Blake being recognized as Humanitarian of the Year.  Over the
years, I’ve watched him give back in so many profound ways. He responded
immediately to those in need after the devastating tornadoes in
Oklahoma in 2013, holding a benefit that was televised nationwide. He
continually gives back to his hometown of Tishomingo, to the children’s
hospital in Oklahoma City and so much more. But it’s what he does on a
daily basis that really sticks out to me.  He will send us an email
about something he’s read and say, ‘I want to do this to help this
person.’ And I think Blake has helped more stranded motorists thanTriple A
– but that’s just his character. He’s a humanitarian every day. Congratulations Blake, you earned it!”
