Tim McGraw and Faith Hill got a humanitarian award yesterday (March 2) from the Country Radio Broadcasters at the annual Country Radio Seminar.

The couple has been involved in lots of fundraising events, and the two put together the multi-artist Nashville Rising show at Bridgestone Arena to help Nashville neighbors affected by last year's floods.

Faith Hill told the crowd that getting the award was bittersweet.

“It comes at the expense of others who are suffering through hard times,” she said. “People just like us—with families, brothers, sisters, children and friends—need our help. People with or without homes, with or without jobs, with or without families, the fact is that uncontrollable and unforeseen disasters are not discriminating.”

Tim told the crowd that doing charity work makes them “inspired and enlightened.”

Last year's winner, Trace Adkins, presented them with the award.
