FGL Honored With Angels Among Us Award, Country Cares Goes Virtual

Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley of BMLGR’s Florida Georgia Line were honored with the Randy Owen Angels Among Us Award during today’s (10/15) virtual St. Jude Country Cares Seminar. Hubbard and Kelley have supported St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for many years, including involving their wives, children and pets in the This Shirt Saves Lives campaigns dating back to 2017. Among their efforts: surprising St. Jude patient Ian with his own “No More Chemo” party onstage at the Nashville Symphony in 2018; bringing their Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour and opening acts Dan + Shay, Morgan Wallen, Hardy and Canaan Smith to the hospital for the largest-ever patient on-campus event in 2019; and participating in multiple fundraising initiatives. “Tyler and Brian have always exemplified the true heart of the Angels Among Us Award by giving their time, love and voices to our mission, making such a powerful impact on the lives of children worldwide through their support of St. Jude,” says ALSAC Pres./CEO Rick Shadyac. “Through a year that has been tough for everyone, they have still shown steadfast support for us.” See Shadyac’s announcement here and FGL’s acceptance speech here.

Today’s virtual seminar (CAT 9/9) also served as a launch event for the We Won’t Stop campaign, featuring a new shirt design and accompanying social media and digital assets. The #StJudeWontStop mission means moving forward with fundraising efforts in new ways amid a global pandemic.
