Former Country group ALABAMA front man and BBR/NASHVILLE artist RANDY OWEN was presented with the DONALD R. MYERS HUMANITARIAN AWARD today (4/20) from the APPALACHIAN REGIONAL COMMISSION. OWEN was announced as the recipient last month, but was not able to accept the award at a ceremony in WASHINGTON, DC due to a snow storm.
He is the first person to receive this award, "on behalf of his tireless efforts raising money for the citizens of APPALACHIA in ALABAMA and other states." For the last 16 years, OWEN has been a part of the ALABAMA JUNE JAM, which has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local projects, including scholarships for deserving youth of the region.
