Darius Rucker‘s 12th annual Darius and Friends benefit for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital will return as a live event this year on Aug. 17 following last year’s virtual concert due to the pandemic. The annual fundraiser, which has raised over $2 million to date, will return to the Ryman Auditorium to celebrate with an all-star roster of friends to be announced in the coming weeks.
“The incredible work being done at St. Jude really made an impact on me when I had a chance to visit and hear the patients’ stories,” shares Rucker. “They are some of the bravest people I’ve ever met and being able to support them with this event is always a highlight of my year. I’m so glad we’ll be back to performing in front of a full house at the Ryman for such a great cause!”
Artists who have performed with Rucker in past years have included Lauren Alaina, Brooks & Dunn, Kane Brown, Luke Bryan, Luke Combs, Sheryl Crow, Ashley McBryde, Brad Paisley, Kenny Rogers and Brett Young, among many others.
Tickets to the 12th annual Darius and Friends benefit are available for purchase to the general public on Friday, July 23. Livestream passes to enjoy the concert from home will also be available here.
