“Darius Rucker & Friends” Concert to Benefit St. Jude Going Virtual on July 30

Darius Rucker isn’t letting the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic stop him from raising money for an organization near and dear to his heart: St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The “Wagon Wheel” singer is turning his 11th Darius & Friends benefit concert into a virtual affair. This year’s show, which features Darius, Clint Black and Tracy Lawrence, will take place on the Grand Ole Opry stage on July 30 at 7 p.m. CT. Fans will be able to view the show via a pay-per-view live stream. The annual concert has raised more than $2 million for St. Jude over the years.

“Even though we can’t all get together for a normal concert right now, it’s important that we continue to support St. Jude and the amazing work that they do,” says Darius. “I hope we can bring a fun night of music to everyone watching from home while also raising money for this important cause.”

Tickets to the pay-per-view event start at $15 with VIP options offering limited-edition and signed posters priced at $50 and $100, respectively. Tickets go on sale on July 10 at 10 a.m. CT.

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
