Darius Rucker to Host Fifth Annual Benefit Concert for St. Jude’s
Darius Rucker will return to the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville on June 2 to host his fifth annual Darius and Friends benefit concert, with the proceeds once again going to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The evening, which is followed by his Darius and Friends Celebrity Golf Tournament the next day, serves as the unoffical kick-off for Nashville's annual CMA Music Fest. Last year, Rucker's efforts, which also include an auction, raised more than $95,000 for the worthwhile cause.
“I look forward to this event all year long,” Rucker says. “I get to share the stage with some of my favorite artists, friends and musical influences. As much fun as it is, it’s all in the spirit of raising support for St. Jude’s, an organization very dear to my heart.”
The South Carolina native has invited several of his famous friends to join him for the star-studded occasion in previous years, including Kid Rock, Luke Bryan, Randy Houser, Clint Black, Justin Moore and many others. Performers and celebrity golf tournament participants will be announced shortly.
Pre-sale tickets will be available on Wednesday (March 19) at 11AM CT for last year's ticket holders. Tickets for the general public will be on sale on Saturday (March 21) at 11AM CT. All tickets will be available for purchase at both the Wildhorse Saloon website and on Rucker's website.
The 'Miss You' singer will continue his True Believers Tour this month with shows in New York, Connecticut and Maine. See a list of all of his upcoming shows here.
