Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow lauds the Grammy Award winners for their work in and out of the studio, including with their organization called Ladyaid Fund, which supports children's hospitals in North America. Portnow says in a statement that reads: "We are proud to honor Lady Antebellum for their artistry and inventiveness in the country arena as well as their philanthropic efforts to make a difference for disadvantaged children here and abroad." Along with Lady Antebellum, House of Representatives Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi will also be honored for recognizing the role music plays in American life.
