DariusRucker_8166

The second annual “Darius and Friends” charity concert line-up was announced this morning. Darius Rucker has invited friends Jarrod Niemann, Rodney Atkins, Justin Moore and Easton Corbin to join him in a benefit concert for St. Jude’s Hospital. It’s already a sold-out event and all proceeds will go directly to the hospital.

The Wildhorse Saloon in downtown Nashville will once again host the event, with doors opening at 6 pm CST and the concert opening at 8 pm CST.

“The first event was so great that we wanted to keep that same theme for this year: artists coming together for a great cause.”

The 2010 event was the first benefit concert hosted by Rucker for St. Jude’s and raised over $48,000 for the hospital. Rucker is hoping to beat that number this year.
