Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line and their Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour cohorts—Dan + Shay, Morgan Wallen, Canaan Smith and Hardy—took a slight detour before their concert in Southaven, Miss., on June 15.
The troupe stopped by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis (about 20 minutes from Southaven) to perform for patients and their families, as well as meet the brave kids who are fighting childhood cancer.
“One of our favorite moments this weekend right here,” said FGL, in part, via Instagram. “Thank you @stjude for inviting us out and to our buddies @danandshay @morganwallen @hardy and @canaansmith for joining us yesterday.”
“Thank you @stjude + @flagaline for inviting us to be a part of such a special day in Memphis,” added Dan + Shay via Twitter. “@stjude is truly one of the most wonderful places on earth, and we’re so proud of our country music community for all that it has contributed towards saving lives.”
The country music industry has raised more than $800 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital since Country Cares for St. Jude Kids began 30 years ago. Thanks to generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.
