Darius Rucker has put together an exciting lineup of some of today’s best country music performers for his sixth annual “Darius and Friends” benefit concert June 8 at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville. A Thousand Horses, Brett Eldredge, Brothers Osborne, Little Big Town and country music legend Steve Wariner will join Darius to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. With a surprise guest yet to be announced and Nan Kelly of GAC hosting, the fundraiser will mark the kickoff to an exciting week in Nashville when the entire constellation of country stars are in town for CMA Music Festival. The event has always sold out and has raised more than $400,000 for cancer research and treatment in past years. The next day Rucker will host his yearly Darius and Friends Celebrity Tee-Off, a golf tournament that also benefits St. Jude and is sponsored by State Water Heaters. Darius raised a record $120,000 last year between the benefit concert, golf tournament and auction.
