Lady Antebellum - Lady Antebellum To Be Honoured With Grammys Philanthropic Prize

Country music stars Lady Antebellum will be honoured at the 2014 Grammys on the Hill Awards for their excellence in both music and philanthropic efforts.

The trio, made of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood, will be given the Recording Artists' Coalition Award during the annual ceremony next month (02Apr14) in Washington, D.C.

The event mixes power players in both music and politics, and the award Lady Antebellum is set to receive is named for a program founded by singers Don Henley and Sheryl Crow.

Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow lauds the Grammy Award winners for their work in and out of the studio, including with their organisation called Ladyaid Fund, which supports children's hospitals in North America.

Portnow says in a statement that reads: "We are proud to honor Lady Antebellum for their artistry and inventiveness in the country arena as well as their philanthropic efforts to make a difference for disadvantaged children here and abroad."

Along with Lady Antebellum, House of Representatives Majority Whip Kevin MCCarthy and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi will also be honoured for recognising the role music plays in American life.
