Darius Rucker will host "Darius and Friends" at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon on June 7, just days before the Country Music Association's annual Music Festival. Proceeds from Darius' event will benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Ticket for the concert, which will include as yet unnamed "friends," go on sale Saturday, March 13. For more information go to wildhorsesaloon.com  or call 615-902-8200.
After touring the St. Jude facility in Memphis in 2009, Darius vowed to do more to support its lifesaving work. “This was a chance for my friends and I to do something during CMA Music Festival week that is for the fans while drawing attention to St. Jude and their incredible efforts,” Darius says in a press release. “It’s going to be a great night of music and stories.”
