NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Tuesday, June 14, 2016) – Darius Rucker brought his friends together last week for a celebrity-packed benefit concert and golf tournament that again reminded the sold-out crowd of the important work done for families at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital while raising $197,000 for their continued efforts.
On Monday, June 6, the seventh annual Darius and Friends benefit concert took place at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville. With performances from Terri Clark, Hunter Hayes, LOCASH, Scotty McCreery, Charley Pride, Dan Tyminski and Drake White, the concert was the unofficial kickoff of Nashville’s CMA Fest.
Terri Clark, Charley Pride and Drake White joined Rucker again the next day for the Celebrity Tee-Off, joining gold medalist Scott Hamilton, David Nail, Dustin Lynch and NASCAR driver Michael Annett. This year's events bring the annual benefit’s total contribution to St. Jude to $857,000.
