Tim Mcgraw - Tim Mcgraw And Faith Hill Honoured For Charity Work

Tim Mcgraw and Faith Hill received an award for their tireless charity work at a ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday (02Mar11).
The country couple was presented with the Country Radio Broadcasters' Artist Humanitarian Award for their fundraising efforts, at the annual Country Radio Seminar at the Nashville Convention Center.
They were handed the prize by last year's (10) winner, country singer Trace Adkins, and honoured for the founding of their charity, Neighbor's Keeper, and their work to help other causes including raising funds for the victims of Hurricane Katrina and flood relief efforts in Tennessee.
As she accepted the prize, Hill said, "Being honoured for our humanitarian work, while incredibly humbling, is also bittersweet for us because it comes at the expense of others who are suffering through hard times. People just like us - with families, brothers, sisters, children and friends - need our help. People with or without homes, with or without jobs, with or without families, the fact is that uncontrollable and unforeseen disasters are not discriminating."
Mcgraw adds, "It sounds like a cliche at the end of the day... but we do think that we are better people for it. We know we are better people for it. We've been inspired and enlightened... The courage, the grit, the determination of those in need and those who are helping each other are always awe-inspiring to us. And that's what we dedicate this award to - people who help each other."
Country duo The Judds was honoured with the Country Radio Broadcasters' career achievement award earlier in the week (01Mar11).
