Darius Rucker has announced the lineup for his fifth annual Darius and Friends Benefit Concert. Set for Monday, June 2, at the Wildhorse Saloon in downtown Nashville, Darius will be joined by Clint Black, Eli Young Band, David Nail, Cassadee Pope, Kenny Rogers, Corey Smith and Thompson Square. All proceeds from the show will go directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“This is one of my favorite events every year and I’m so glad we’re able to support St. Jude for the fifth year in a row,” Darius said. “St. Jude does such amazing work for young cancer patients and their families, and I’m grateful to all my fellow artists and friends for coming together to have some fun and support such a great cause.”
Additionally, the annual Darius and Friends Celebrity Golf Tournament, also benefiting St. Jude, will take place on Tuesday, June 3. Artists and celebrities set to tee off this year include Colt Ford, Scott Hamilton, JT Hodges, Randy Houser, Tommy John, Charles Kelley, Dustin Lynch, Derek Mason, David Nail, Jon Pardi, Eric Paslay, Keifer Thompson and more.
To date, “Darius and Friends” has raised more than $225,000 for St. Jude through the concert, celebrity golf tournament and charity auction. Darius is currently on the road, headlining his True Believers Tour.
