From Luke Combs, Chris Stapleton to Darius, many country stars step up to help the children at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis. Whether they perform for patients, hold fundraisers, or while on tour, they find a way to lend their support.

St. Jude

Do you remember when Luke Combs was performing in Cape Girardeau, Mo. back in October of 2019? Hutsen, a St. Jude patient, was holding up a sign in the crowd, "This St. Jude Kid Loves You", and caught the attention of Luke. What came next will bring you to tears. Watch for yourself.

Darius Rucker holds his annual “Darius & Friends” concert each year, and raises funds for St. Jude. The event has already raised over $2 million to date. Because of his passion for St. Jude, he was honored with the 'Randy Owen Angels Among Us Award' back in January of 2017. The way that he interacts with patients is a beautiful thing to witness.

Keith Urban produces an annual calendar to raise money for St. Jude, and it always sells out on his fan page. He also visits the hospital and patients whenever he can.

It was a special moment back in January of 2020 when Brad Paisley shared the stage with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital patient and cancer survivor Addie. It was the final evening of the St. Jude Country Cares seminar where the crowd went wild after their performance.

Chris Young has always been passionate about the hospital. Below he shares what his involvement with St. Jude has meant to him, and why it's important to give back.

In October 2020 the 'Randy Owen Angels Among Us Award' recognized Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line. The guys not only tour the hospital to meet patients, but they have major concert events to raise awareness and money for St. Jude.
