Darius Rucker Announces 9th Annual Benefit Concert for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Darius Rucker announced that his ninth annual Darius & Friends benefit concert will take place on June 4 at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.

The concert, which benefits St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, will lead into Nashville’s CMA Music Festival on June 7–10.

“When you see firsthand what this organization can do for families, it’s remarkable,” Darius says. “Over the years, we’ve met so many survivors, families of patients and volunteers whose lives have been changed by St. Jude. It’s one of my favorite shows of the year.”

Darius’ annual concert has raised more than $1 million for St. Jude over the years and has featured a number of high-profile performers, including Luke Bryan, Kenny Rogers, Brooks & Dunn, Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley and more.

This year’s lineup will be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets go on sale on April 20 at 10 a.m. CT, with pre-sale beginning on April 17 at 10 a.m. CT.
