Hunter Hayes, Drake White and More to Join Darius Rucker for Benefit Concert
Darius Rucker has announced the lineup for his seventh annual Darius Rucker & Friends benefit concert.
Joining Rucker onstage in 2016 will be Terri Clark, Hunter Hayes, Scotty McCreery, Charley Pride and Drake White -- and more artists will be announced in the coming weeks. The annual event is set for June 6, the week of the 2016 CMA Music Festival, at Nashville's Wildhorse Saloon.
Rucker's benefit concert, along with a silent auction and golf tournament, raises money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Throughout the years, more than $700,000 has been raised, with more than $220,000 raised in 2015. Last year's concert featured Little Big Town, Brett Eldredge, A Thousand Horses, the Brothers Osborne, McCreery and Steve Wariner.
“Growing up, my mother instilled in me the importance of giving back. Whether it was mowing a neighbor’s yard or helping during the loss of a loved one, it’s important on so many levels,” Rucker explained a few years ago. “Just like St. Jude, I’ve been given so much from the music community over the years, so this is one of the ways I know how to say ‘thanks.’ Not only is this one of my favorite shows all year, but it’s a great platform to remind so many of the incredible work done by St. Jude.”
Tickets for the Darius Rucker & Friends show are on sale now through Ticketmaster.
