Darius Rucker Puts Himself ‘On Call’ for Hospital Patients
Darius Rucker will give the patients of the Tennessee Valley Healthcare system's VA Hospital a treat when he visits the facility Wednesday (Feb. 24) as part of the Musicians on Call program. The non-profit organization brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients all across the country.
Darius is also helping raise funds for Musicians on Call at an intimate benefit show set for March 3 at Nashville's Hard Rock Cafe. "I think the Musicians on Call initiative is important because it's one-on-one contact with patients whose health and recovery can directly be affected by one person's time and attention," says Darius. "Hospitals like the VA are so incredible for recognizing this benefit and incorporating it into their treatment to break up the monotony and improve each patient's quality of life."
