Darius Rucker will be joined by a host of hitmakers this year for his sixth annual “Darius And Friends” benefit June 8 at the Wildhorse Saloon. Little Big Town, Brett Eldredge, A Thousand Horses, Brothers Osborne, and Steve Wariner will perform at the concert event which sells out year after year and raises funds for St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
GAC’s Nan Kelly will host this year’s benefit, and a special surprise guest is in the works for the show and will be announced soon. In the concert’s six-year history it has raised over $400,000 for cancer research and treatment.
The day after the show, Rucker will host his annual Darius And Friends Celebrity Tee-Off golf tournament which also benefits St. Jude.
Last year Rucker raised $120,000 for the hospital between the concert, golf tourney, and auction.
