John Rich Receives First ‘Angels Among Us Award’ At St. Jude Seminar

One of the many things I got to witness at this year’s St. Jude Country Cares Seminar was a very well-deserved recognition for an artist who set records in raising money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  On last year’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” John Rich not only won the competition, he raised 1.4 million dollars for St. Jude in the process.  John was presented the award during the annual “Songwriters’ Dinner” which closes out the seminar every year.  Before the performances began, Randy Owen, founder of Country Cares, and front man of Alabama, called attention of the 800 or so radio staff from all over the country to the video screens.

After humbly accepting the award, Rich said, “I don’t think you should get awards for something you oughta be doing anyway,” and added that when his kids grow up they could, “Google his name and find this among all the crazy things he did.”

Rich then sat in as a songwriter and performed songs he had written like “For The Kids,” “Like We Never Loved At All,” and “Save A Horse (Ride A Cowboy).”
