Florida Georgia Line received the Randy Owen “Angels Among Us” award during a livestream event on Thursday (October 15) from St. Jude Hospital.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which is located in Memphis, Tennessee, is one of the world’s premier pediatric cancer research centers. Its mission is to find cures for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley have supported St. Jude families for many years, including involving their own families and pets in the This Shirt Saves Lives social media campaign since 2017.
At the Nashville Symphony in 2018, Kelley led a crowd of more than 1,500 fans in singing the “No More Chemo” song to a patient in celebration of his last round of chemotherapy.
The duo posted to Instagram last night (10/15), “Thank you @StJude for the Angels Among Us Award. We are continually inspired by the kids’ strength and their amazing stories of bravery. Music is healing and we love being able to help in any way we can to further your mission.”
Tyler said of getting the award, “There is truly no place like St. Jude. 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.”
Brian added, “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.”
