Nine years since visiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® and pledging his support, Darius Rucker has announced the date for his eighth annual “Darius and Friends” benefit concert, sponsored by State Water Heaters. The event, which leads into CMA Music Festival week, takes place Monday, June 5 and will be held for the FIRST time at historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. “This concert is a real highlight for me every year,” Rucker said. “And I couldn’t do it without the support of my friends who turn out to perform, tell stories and make this a memorable night for the fans, who are here from around the world.” The event has received an overwhelming response in past years, with sellouts year-after-year and more than $800,000 raised for St. Jude. Friends performing with Rucker in past years have included Luke Bryan, Radney Foster, Randy Houser, Jamey Johnson, Charles Kelley (Lady Antebellum) and Kenny Rogers, among others. The lineup for this year’s event will be announced in the coming weeks. Rucker made a commitment to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital after touring the campus in 2008 and recognized worldwide for the lifesaving mission. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Unlike any other hospital, the majority of funding for St. Jude comes from individual contributions. Events like this help ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. This year Rucker teamed up with Ticketmaster to allow supporters to become #VerifiedFans. Qualified registrars that enter by Thursday, April 13 at 10 a.m. CT will receive a unique code to ensure they can buy tickets without worrying about scalpers or bots.

Until recently, if you wanted to hear Paul Shaffer and his crew of industry-respected musicians, all you had to do was turn on your television at around bedtime. The carefully cultivated group of session players performed nightly and backed up decades of musical guests, first on NBC’s Late Night With David Letterman and later on CBS’s Late Show With David Letterman, shifting their handle from The World’s Most Dangerous Band to The CBS Orchestra along the way. Now that their former boss has retired to spend more time with his facial hair, though. there was the danger that these players would be blown off with the wind. Fortunately, that’s not the case. The longtime collaborators are still playing together. In fact, they’re currently on the verge of a new album release and North American tour. Source: A.V. Club [less-]

Until recently, if you wanted to hear Paul Shaffer and his crew of industry-respected musicians, all you had to do was turn on your television at around bedtime. The carefully cultivated group of session players performed nightly and backed up decades of musical guests, first on NBC’s Late Night With David Letterman and later on CBS’s Late Show With David Letterman, shifting their handle from The World’s Most Dangerous Band to The CBS Orchestra along the way. Now that their former boss has retired to spend more time with his facial hair, though. there was the danger that these players would be blown off with the wind. Fortunately, that’s not the case. The longtime collaborators are still playing together. In fact, they’re currently on the verge of a new album release and North American tour. Source: A.V. Club [less-]
