Luke Bryan, Sam Bush, John Cowan, Radney Foster, Randy Houser, Dustin Lynch and Justin Moore will join Darius Rucker for his sold-out, fourth annual “Darius And Friends” benefit concert on Monday, June 3 at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville. Proceeds from the event go directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

“I always look forward to this event each year, and I’m so happy to have Luke, Sam, John, Randy, Dustin, Justin, and of course my hero, Radney, join me to help raise funds for St. Jude,” says Rucker. “A few years ago I visited the St. Jude campus in Memphis and instantly became a ‘true believer’ in everyone there and the work they do to help treat kids and cure disease. I am happy to help raise funds for such a worthwhile cause and thrilled that some of my friends can join me.”

Since its inception, “Darius And Friends” has grown to include a charity auction and a celebrity golf tournament and has raised more than $225,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

This year’s event is sponsored by Transitions® lenses and Visionworks®, including the “Darius And Friends” golf tournament to be held in Nashville on June 4. Celebrity golfers include Nashville Predator J.P. Dumont, country artists Jay DeMarcus (Rascal Flatts), Colt Ford, JT Hodges, Charles Kelley (Lady Antebellum), Dustin Lynch, Justin Moore, David Nail, Joe Don Rooney (Rascal Flatts), NASCAR Hall of Famer Darrell Waltrip and more.
