Each January, country music professionals, from the studio to the radio, show their support for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, at a wonderful charity event known as “Country Cares.” To date, “Country Cares” has raised over $600 million for St. Jude through artists, as well as over 200 radio stations, greatly aiding their $2.1 million daily operation costs. Among this year’s attendees for “Country Cares,” was country artist Trace Adkins. As a donor and participant for this year’s gathering, Adkins spent his weekend learning about the cutting-edge technologies St. Jude is using to help identify, treat, and cure childhood cancers, across the United States. Trace and several other A-list country superstars finished off the weekend with a benefit concert/writer’s round to raise awareness for childhood cancer, and witnessed Nashville singer and actress Clare Bowen share her personal cancer-survival story. A truly heartwarming and extraordinarily beneficial event, “Country Cares” intends to carry on their yearly gathering for years to come, proving that country truly does care.
