Zac Brown Band will receive the Recording Artists' Coalition Award at the Recording Academy's 2016 Grammys on the Hill Awards. The event takes place 4/13 at the Hamilton Live in our nation’s capital.

Brown and his cohorts are being honored for their musical achievements and commitment to philanthropic causes, including Zac Brown’s Camp Southern Ground, the Boot Campaign, City of Hope, MusiCares and the USO.

The Academy will also recognize Reps. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) and Thomas J. Rooney (R-Fla.) for their support and understanding of vital issues impacting music creators. The two politicos are co-sponsors of the Allocation for Music Producers Act (H.R. 1457), also known as the AMP Act, a bill that would streamline how producers receive performance royalties.

"Zac Brown Band is an excellent example of creative artists making a difference not only in music, but in the world of philanthropy at large," said Neil Portnow. "It's our pleasure to recognize their dedication at our 2016 Grammys on the Hill event. The Academy is pleased to honor Congressmen Crowley and Rooney, whose sponsorship of the AMP Act and the Fair Play Fair Pay Act demonstrates their understanding and support of crucial parity issues for music professionals at a pivotal time for music legislation in Washington."
