Trace Adkins, Jordan Rager, Brooke Eden and Charles Kelley help kick off the 2016 Taste of Country St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Webathon with emotional stories of St. Jude patients each will remember forever. Grab a box of tissues and watch this two-minute video that summarizes what Country Cares is all about.
Drake White and Lanco also share their favorite moments from a recent tour of St. Jude, a world-renowned research hospital in Memphis, Tenn. It’s Adkins’ story that will twist your heart up, however. Fans not used to seeing the “Jesus and Jones” singer get emotional will be at a loss for words as he talks about “Jessica.”
For the third straight year, Taste of Country is joining 15 Townsquare Media radio stations to help raise money for St. Jude. This two-day webathon coincides with the individual radiothons happening nationwide on March 3-4. Nearly $2.5 million has been raised to date during this radio/webathon collaboration. This third year will feature more powerful stories and more compelling reasons why you should choose to help a children’s hospital at the leading edge of saving lives of kids battling cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
Daily operating costs at St. Jude exceed $2 million, and country radio is doing everything possible to cover costs. Over $550 million has been raised during 26 years worth of Country Cares radiothons by hundreds of radio stations nationwide. Randy Owen continues to be at the forefront, leading a group of superstar acts like Keith Urban, Big & Rich and Brad Paisley as they support a research hospital that has helped raise survival rates of childhood cancer from 20 percent in 1962 to 80 percent today.
Justin Moore joins Taste of Country’s two-day event by telling his St. Jude story. You’ll find full interviews with each of these artists on Thursday and Friday. The 2016 Country Cares event in Memphis also included visits by stars like Old Dominion, Frankie Ballard, Love and Theft, Ryan Kinder, Chris Young and Clare Dunn.
