Lady Antebellum will soon be able to add another award to their list of accolades, but this time, the honor isn’t solely for their musical talents. The band shared via their website on March 7 that they have been named as the winner of the 2014 Recording Artists’ Coalition Award.
Lady A will receive the award at GRAMMYs on the Hill, an event that takes place in Washington D.C. on April 2. Lady Antebellum is being honored not only for their contribution to country music but also for their consistent work on behalf of disadvantaged children.
For several years, the members of Lady Antebellum have visited children’s hospitals and in 2012, the band created LadyAID, a foundation that supports local hospitals in the band’s home state of Tennessee as well as Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and several global organizations that
bring aid to children.
The GRAMMYs on the Hill will include a cocktail reception and dinner in addition to the awards ceremony. Celebrities and recording industry personnel will attend the formal event and proceeds will provide financial support for music programs throughout the U.S. as part of the GRAMMY Foundation’s GRAMMY Signature Schools program.
