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.

“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.

Lorrie Morgan

Lorrie Morgan, award-winning, platinum-selling country music star, has gathered her friends including Vince Gill, Tracy Lawrence, Darryl Worley, Exile, TG Sheppard, Daryle Singletary, Baillie & The Boys, Sonia Leigh, George Ducas, Ashlee Hewitt, Kelly Lang, Steffen Hughes, and her son Jesse Keith Whitley to perform this Tuesday, March 17, 2015 (6:00 pm), at the Wildhorse Saloon to benefit and honor long-time music industry veteran Ms. Debbie Ballentine, who lost her fight against cancer on Sunday, February 1st.

The charity event entitled, ‘I AM A WOMAN,’ will support the Ballentine family to cover medical bills incurred during her illness. Tickets are $30 per person; available NOW on Tickets may also be purchased day-of-show at Wildhorse Saloon Box Office. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

“This event is special for me, this lady was so special to me. She was my lifeline for so many years, she knew me like no other,” said Lorrie Morgan. “There is nothing that is fair or good about this horrible disease. It’s so difficult to even think about what she went through…while we all continued on with own lives. Debbie will always remain in my heart.”

With the loving support and strength from family and friends, Ballentine bravely fought her battle with cancer since Fall 2011. After the long fight and many doctor visits/hospital stays, the family’s medical bills are insurmountable.

A special after-party will happen immediately following the show ($5 per person) at Silver Dollar Saloon (110 2nd Avenue North, Nashville, TN).

All proceeds from ticket and auction item sales will be dedicated to support Debbie’s family to assist in alleviating their financial burden. Individuals unable to attend can offer support by visiting her GoFundMe link:
