Darius & Friends

7:30pm CDT / 8:30pm EDT
Darius Rucker will perform at Ryman Auditorium on August 17 for his annual benefit concert for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. This event will be livestreamed in partnership with Mandolin.
The event has received an overwhelming response in past years, with sellouts year-after-year and more than $800,000 raised for St. Jude. Friends performing with Rucker in past years have included Luke Bryan, Radney Foster, Randy Houser, Jamey Johnson, Charles Kelley (Lady A) and Kenny Rogers, among others. The lineup for this year’s event will be announced in the coming weeks.
Rucker made a commitment to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital after touring the campus in 2008 and recognized worldwide for the lifesaving mission.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Unlike any other hospital, the majority of funding for St. Jude comes from individual contributions. Events like this help ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
