Wynonna, Larry the Cable Guy Join John Rich-Hosted St. Jude Benefit

John Rich will be joined by his friends Wynonna, Larry the Cable Guy and Big Kenny, along with Lisa Rinna, for the annual St. Jude Presents John Rich & Friends concert June 4 at the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts in Memphis. In addition to raising funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the concert event serves as the kickoff for the 2013 FedEx St. Jude Classic PGA golf tournament.

"From the first time I visited St. Jude years ago, I knew that it was a place I belonged,” said Wynonna in a statement. “As a mother, I look into the eyes of every child and I realize that they could easily be one of my children. As an artist, I ask myself, 'What can I do to bring a blessing to these wounded and hurting families?'"

"One of the greatest honors of my life's work is to help the kids at St Jude," added John. "To bring music to their lives and use music to raise funds for their care is something bigger than a hit song or a sold out concert."

John has long been a devoted supporter of St. Jude's mission, including making the hospital his charity on his winning season of Celebrity Apprentice. Check here for information about purchasing tickets to the concert.
