The Need You Now trio will be presented with the Music Heals Award during a ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee on 9 August (16).

Lady Antebellum have been longtime supporters of the Musicians On Call organisation, which brings live and recorded music to patients in healthcare facilities.

"Music is so universal and has so much power," singer Hillary Scott says in a statement. "We’ve been able to share our love of music and experience first-hand how it touches people. It’s really special to see music help people get through really tough times, so we’re truly honoured to be a part of what Musicians On Call is doing and receive the Music Heals Award."

The upcoming event will also celebrate the non-profit's Half A Million Moments campaign, which marks the milestone of performing for half a million patients, families and caregivers.
