I know a lot of Acadiana folks go to Nashville for the annual CMA Music Fest - (well, I still call it Fan Fair) so I wanted to pass along some info about a really wonderful benefit for St Jude Children's Research Hospital that kicks off the festivities on Monday June 3rd.

Our friend Darius Rucker will host the fourth annual "Darius and Friends" benefit concert  at the Wildhorse Saloon, officially kicking off the CMA Music Festival week! All proceeds from this show will go directly to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  I LOVE this! This concert  will be held in conjunction with a charity auction and celebrity golf tournament that  has already raised $125,000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Buy your tickets and help the cause today!

What I really love about Fan Fair is that we, the fans, not only get a chance to see all of our favorite artists perform, but we get to support so many charities that our country artists help.

So if you are a fan of Darius' - and he is one of the nicest guys around - and you want to help the kids at St Jude while you're in Nashville for CMA Fest week, check out the info on how to get tickets. Way to go, Darius! Thanks for helping the kids at St Jude!
