Darius Rucker will host his first Annual 'Darius and Friends' benefit concert next month in Nashville during CMA Music Fest. For the concert, taking place Monday, June 7 at 9:00 PM at the Wildhorse Saloon, Darius has asked some of his closest buddies in country music to participate, including Radney Foster, Randy Houser, Jamey Johnson and Jake Owen. Additional performers will be announced at a later date.

All proceeds from 'Darius and Friends' will benefit the groundbreaking research and lifesaving care of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Darius was determined to do his part in helping the hospital after a 2009 tour of the facility.

"The friends joining me for this benefit concert all share the same dream I do for a cancer-free world, but until that can happen, we need to raise awareness and funds for this incredible organization," Darius says. "It's going to be a great night of music and stories."

Tickets to 'Darius and Friends' are on sale now through Ticketmaster.
