Country stars Vince Gill, Charlie Daniels and Randy Owen were honoured at a prizegiving in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday (17Oct12) in recognition of their humanitarian work.

The trio was guests of honour at the Leadership Music Dale Franklin Awards and they were applauded for their charitable efforts.

Musicians including Rodney Crowell and Al Anderson took to the stage to play for the award winners at the event, held at Nashville's War Memorial Auditorium, while Gill's wife Amy Grant and his daughter Jenny, from his first marriage, also paid tribute to the country star.

Gill's family presented him with a glass bowl engraved with the name of the award, and Gill joked, "I can put a lot of peanut M&M's in here."

Speaking before the ceremony, Gill played down his charitable work, telling reporters, "All you can do is lead by example and that's all I've ever tried to do - help out."

Daniels added, "I am just so honoured to be thought of in the same sentence with these other two guys. I don't do charitable things to be recognised but it's still nice when that happens."
