Darius Rucker announced he will return to the historic Ryman Auditorium on Monday, June 6th for his 13th Annual ‘Darius and Friends’ concert benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The event unofficially kicks off the week of ‘CMA Fest’ in downtown Nashville, and to date has raised more than $2.5 million.
Darius and Friends will feature an all-star roster of friends to be announced in the coming weeks. Says Rucker: “I can’t wait to be back at the Ryman with all of our friends from St. Jude. This show is always a highlight of the year for me, because it not only raises funds for a very important cause, but it also allows me to bring together some of my best friends in Nashville for a fun night of incredible music.”
Rucker made a commitment to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital nearly 15 years ago after taking an inspiring tour of the hospital. More than a decade later, that effort has become an annual tradition. Tickets to the 13th Annual Darius & Friends benefit concert start at $50 with VIP options up to $150, and are available via AXS.com.
