Big Kenny and comedians Williams & Ree join the show to help tee off the
2015 FedEx St. Jude Classic
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (May 20, 2015) – Country music singer-songwriter John Rich will again headline St. Jude Presents John Rich and Friends, an evening of songs, stories and hope, Tuesday, June 9, at the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts. Joining Rich this year are Lee Greenwood, Lorrie Morgan, T.G. Sheppard, John Conlee, Frankie Ballard, comedians Williams & Ree and his Big & Rich bandmate, Big Kenny.
Proceeds from the event, which kicks off the 2015 FedEx St. Jude Classic golf tournament week, benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Funds from this event help ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Rich has a string of hits as a solo artist and with Big & Rich, including “Comin’ to Your City,” “8th of November” and “Lost in the Moment.” Fellow performers Lee Greenwood, Lorrie Morgan, T.G. Sheppard and John Conlee have more than 30 No. 1 singles combined.
"I’m incredibly proud that the St. Jude Presents John Rich and Friends charity event has grown into an amazing entertainment event over the past four years, while continuing to support the kids of St Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” said Rich. “It’s a blessing to be part of an industry that has supported St. Jude so passionately for the past 30 years.”
St. Jude partner Window World® is presenting sponsor for the fourth consecutive year, and plays an important role in the success of St. Jude Presents John Rich and Friends. Through its charitable foundation Window World Cares®, the company supports St. Jude throughout the year and has raised more than $5 million for the kids of St. Jude.
