BIG & RICH, LEE ANN WOMACK HONORED

Today in Washington, D.C., Big & Rich are being honored with the "Champions For Change" award from Lifetime Television for their song, "Holy Water," as part of the fourth annual "Stop The Violence Against Women Week." Since the duo is in Deadwood, South Dakota today shooting the video for their new single, "Big Time," Big Kenny's sister, Charlene Wine, will accept the award on their behalf. "My sister and John's sister both went through terrible things, man," Big Kenny told X Radio Networks. "This was a lot of years ago, but it affected her entire life. My sister, I asked her what made her leave this man that she was with? And she said, 'I was holding our baby, and he was mad and he kicked me in the head.' But worse than that, he stole her spirit from her, and it took her years and years to get that back. And now she's doing great and she's really successful, and she's gonna be the one that goes and accepts that award."
