“As a long-time advocate for the environment and safe energy, it is such an honor to receive the Planet Defender award from Rock the Earth”, Raitt said. “This organization has been a faithful non-profit partner in my ongoing effort to share the message of ultimate environmental responsibility with fans at my concerts. Thank you, Rock the Earth, for helping to spread the word about protecting the environment and encouraging people to get involved at the local level. Keep up the great work!
