Scotty McCreery Joins Darius Rucker for his annual St. Jude Benefit



Generations of country hit-makers joined Darius Rucker Monday at the Wildhorse Saloon for a sold-out charity benefit that mixed the camaraderie of the Grand Ole Opry with the spontaneity of a front porch jam session.

The sixth annual "Darius and Friends" concert brought Rucker together with Little Big Town, Brett Eldredge, Scotty McCreery, Steve Wariner, A Thousand Horses and Brothers Osborne to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.

It marked the unofficial kickoff of the CMA Music Festival, which is expected to bring about 80,000 country music fans a day to downtown Nashville later this week. McCreery hadn't planned to get into town until later in the week, but he changed his plans when Rucker called to invite him to play.  "Any time you can help somebody out but also have fun doing it, that's a no-brainer," McCreery said.
