Darius Rucker is hosting his fifth annual ‘Darius and Friends’ concert benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on June 2 — and he’s bringing along some famous friends!

The ‘Wagon Wheel’ singer announced the lineup for ‘Darius and Friends’ and it includes some country’s hottest acts, including Kenny Rogers, Eli Young Band and David Nail. Other performers include Cassadee Pope, Clint Black, Corey Smith and Thompson Square.

“This is one of my favorite events every year and I’m so glad we’re able to support St. Jude for the fifth year in a row,” says the pop-to-country crossover crooner. “St. Jude does such amazing work for young cancer patients and their families, and I’m grateful to all my fellow artists and friends for coming together to have some fun and support such a great cause.”

All proceeds from the benefit concert will go to St. Jude, which treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases without charging their clients a penny. And Rucker isn’t stopping with the concert, either. He’ll also host the ‘Darius and Friends Celebrity Golf Tournament,’ teeing off on June 3. Country superstars hitting the links include Colt Ford, JT Hodges, Randy Houser, Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum, Dustin Lynch, Jon Pardi, Eric Paslay, Keifer Thompson of Thompson Square and lots more.

‘Darius and Friends’ is already sold-out and will unofficially kick off the 2014 CMA Music Festival in Nashville. In the five years of its existence, the concert, celebrity golf tournament and a charity auction have brought in over $225,000 for St. Jude.

Rucker recently finished up his True Believers Tour. He’ll be playing fairs and festivals this summer.
