More than 850 members of the country music industry gathered in Memphis in January to kick off the 26th year of Country Cares for St. Jude Kids® in support of the lifesaving work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. The event gives St. Jude patients the opportunity to meet some of their favorite country music artists, and celebrates radio partners who have raised national awareness and nearly $600 million to help St. Jude fight childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Country Cares began in 1989 after Randy Owen, lead singer of the music group ALABAMA, met St. Jude founder Danny Thomas and asked his fellow country music artists, radio stations and loyal listeners to help support St. Jude.
