Darius Rucker is set to host his seventh annual Darius And Friends Concert At Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon tonight. The show will benefit St. Jude’s Research Hospital, and is bound to be one of the highlights of this week’s CMA Festival, which on its own is one of Darius’ favorite weeks of the year.

Darius says CMA fest “is like nothing else,” adding “I love coming here,” especially because of all the fans. He offers, “They come here for one week to see country music, and it’s amazing.”
