Country music duo Florida Georgia Line have received the Randy Owen Angels Among Us Award in recognition of their longstanding support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The accolade was announced during the We Won’t Stop livestream in support of the organization’s life-saving mission on Thursday afternoon, October 15.
FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley have worked to benefit the Memphis, Tennessee-based children’s hospital. They have been a part of St. Jude’s This Shirt Saves Lives campaign since 2017.
In 2018, Kelley led a No More Chemo party for a St. Jude patient with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra in Music City in celebration of his last round of chemotherapy.
“There is truly no place like St. Jude,” Hubbard said. “Whenever we visit, we are continually inspired by the kids’ strength and their amazing stories of bravery. Giving back is in our hearts and to be presented this award is an absolute honor.”
“Music is healing, and we love being able to help in any way we can to further the mission of St. Jude. And for this award to be named after Randy Owen — who has always been one of our influences — that’s pretty incredible,” Kelley added.
