Darius Rucker’s 11th Annual “Darius & Friends” Benefit Concert Raises More Than $255,000 for St. Jude

Darius Rucker didn’t let the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic stop him from raising money for an organization near and dear to his heart: St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The “Wagon Wheel” singer turned his 11th Darius & Friends benefit concert into a virtual affair, which raised more than $255,000 for St. Jude.

This year’s show featured Darius, Clint Black and Tracy Lawrence performing on the Grand Ole Opry stage on July 30. Fans were able to view the show via a pay-per-view live stream. Darius’ annual concerts have raised more than $2 million for St. Jude over the years.

“When we first started talking about this year’s concert, which usually takes place during the week of CMA Fest, I had the idea to make it a really fun night of ’90s country,” says Darius. “Even though gathering in person for our normal show wasn’t possible this year, we still wanted to do as much as we could to support the great work happening at St. Jude. I’m so thankful to my friends Clint Black and Tracy Lawrence for helping that ’90s country vision still come to life, and to the folks at LiveXLive for bringing this concert to everyone’s screens at home.”
