Darius Rucker has set a date for his 10th Annual Darius and Friends concert. The event benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis and unofficially kicks off CMA Music Fest in downtown Nashville. To date it has raised $1.6 million.

Currently on a reunion tour with Hootie and The Blowfish, Darius said, "When we were planning the upcoming Hootie & the Blowfish tour, it was important to me that we kept this show on the schedule. Of all the exciting things to come this year, this night will still be a highlight."
