Trace Adkins’ St. Jude Story Will Humble You [Watch]
Trace Adkins, Jordan Rager, Brooke Eden and Charles Kelley will remember their emotional meetings with St. Jude patients 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 "Watered Down" singer get emotional will be at a loss for words as he talks about "Jessica."
For the fifth straight year, Taste of Country is joining Townsquare Media radio stations to help raise money for St. Jude. This two-day webathon coincides with the individual radiothons happening nationwide on Feb. 1-2. This 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 $700 million has been raised during nearly three decades 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.
