The Grand Ole Opry® will celebrate Country Cares for St. Jude Kids® during a special show Wednesday, September 13 as the Opry launches its first-ever series of fall Wednesday shows. Artists scheduled include Randy Owen of Alabama, four-time Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan, who will perform his brand new single “Light It Up,” and Clare Bowen of the hit series NASHVILLE.
Throughout the show, photos and videos of inspirational moments from Country Cares for St. Jude Kids® will be shared, and a St. Jude patient will take the stage as a special guest announcer for the night. During the month of September, which is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, supporters are encouraged to help St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® in its efforts to end childhood cancer.
When guests purchase tickets for the evening at the link below, $5 from each ticket sold will be donated to St. Jude, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent when the hospital opened in 1962 to more than 80 percent today. Purchase tickets HERE.
Other performers scheduled for the Wednesday series, which runs through September 27, include Darius Rucker, who will mark five years as an official Opry member during an Opry visit September 20. Vince Gill, Brothers Osborne and Jacob Davis are scheduled to join Rucker. Bobby Bones and Chris Janson, whose sophomore album Everybody is set for release in September, will help round out the series September 27.
