Grammy winner and 21-time Dove Award-winning artist Jason Crabb was recently honored when a street in his hometown of Beaver Dam, Kentucky, was named for him. During a hometown show at the new, state-of-the-art Beaver Dam Amphitheater, the city surprised and honored Crabb with the street sign for "Jason Crabb Drive" entering the Amphitheater.

”We were thrilled to have Jason come home for this concert,” shared Mayor Paul Sandefur. “We were even more thrilled to show him how proud we are of him and his work by naming the street into Beaver Dam's new amphitheater after Jason." Sandefur, along with City Commissioners Charles Patton, Kevin Davis and Sandy Robinson, presented him with the honor.

Jason was performing in his hometown for the first time since he had laid his beloved grandmother to rest earlier this year, so it was quite an emotional homecoming. “I can't even begin to tell you how shocked and humbled I am,” shared Crabb with his fans on Facebook. “I wish my grandma and grandfather could be here. I'm so proud to be from Beaver Dam. I can't believe this!”

The Beaver Dam Amphitheater opened this past fall and has already hosted artists such as Merle Haggard, Newsboys, Aaron Tippin and more. The venue will host upcoming shows from Third Day in August and the Blue Moon Bluegrass Music Festival in October.
