For 25 years country music radio stations and country music artists have given their time and efforts to help raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Through the program radio listeners can call in to make donations to the hospital. Since the Country Cares for St. Jude Kids program began in 1989, it has raised $200 million in pledges to support the hospital.
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Country Cares for St. Jude Kids, the Grand Ole Opry is hosting a special show on September 23, 2014. The special show will feature a St. Jude patient as guest announcer, and will share photos and videos of special moments from the 25 years of the successful fund-raising program.
Artists performing in the anniversary celebration show include the Charlie Daniels Band, Eric Paslay, the Opry debut of Maddie and Tae, and closing the show with a full 30-minute set, country superstar Brad Paisley is scheduled to perform including music from his newest CD, Moonshine in the Trunk.
Make plans to be in Nashville to be a part of this commemorative show and radio broadcast.
