The 2014 Country Cares For St Jude Kids radiothon was a huge success thanks to all of our awesome Kicker listeners. This year we raised $45,584 to help fight childhood cancer at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. We also gave away some terrific prizes thanks to our participating sponsors.The Grand Prize winner was Tony Rutledge and he wins 4 tickets to see George Strait in his final concert June 7 in Arlington, Texas at AT&T stadium. It's going to be a Mega-Star lineup which includes Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney and many more saluting the King of Country one last time. Tony also wins two rooms with overnight accommodations at the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott DFW Airport North Irving.

Runner Up prize was an collector's edition autographed Dr Pepper guitar won by Jerrica Avery. The guitar was signed by Willie Nelson, Randy Owen (Alabama), Easton Corbin, Thomas Rhett, Rascal Flatts, Kellie Pickler, Scotty McCreery, Cassadee Pope, and many more top country stars.

Jerrica said her dad was ecstatic that the guitar had Willie's signature on it. I told Jerrica we've been collecting autographs for over a year and it's been in our possession all that time and she said quote "It's Mine Now."

Thanks again for a great St. Jude radiothon and special thanks to all our local volunteers!
