Darius Rucker's livestream of his Darius & Friends benefit concert for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on Thursday (July 30th) raised over $255,000 and added to the event’s overall total of more than $2 million. The concert was broadcast from the Grand Ole Opry stage and featured performances by Darius, Clint Black and Tracy Lawrence.
Darius said, “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. 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 . . .”
Darius will return to the Grand Ole Opry to perform live on Saturday, August 15th along with Luke Bryan.
His new single, “Beers And Sunshine,” will make a world premiere at Country radio this Thursday (August 6th) and will be available everywhere on Friday (August 7th).
