Lauren Alaina, Ashley McBryde Join Darius And Friends St. Jude Benefit Lineup

Darius Rucker returns to the Ryman Auditorium for the ninth year for his fan favorite “Darius and Friends” benefit for St. Jude Children’s Hospital featuring an all-star lineup of friends on Monday, June 4. 

The benefit has raised more than $1 million over the years for the hospital and this year will include Trace Adkins, Lauren Alaina, Bobby Bones, Ashley McBryde and Rachel Wammack.

“St. Jude is doing incredible work for patients and families every single day, so whatever we can do to help them is a no-brainer for me,” said Rucker. “We’re so appreciative of these artists coming out to help us kick off CMA Fest week for such a good cause.”

Rucker recently achieved his ninth career chart-topper with “For The First Time” and will co-headline the Summer Plays On Tour this summer with Lady Antebellum before heading overseas to the UK for a string of shows this Fall.
