Jake Owen and Hunter Hayes Teaming Up for St. Jude Benefit Concert
Jake Owen and Hunter Hayes have announced a special benefit concert for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The special one-time event is on July 26 in Memphis, Tenn., at FedExForum. The date of the show coincides with the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational from July 24-28, which also takes place in Memphis.
Owen has worked with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital before, recently performing at the 30th anniversary of Country Cares for St. Jude Kids. Randy Owen even presented Owen with the Angels Among Us award in 2019 to recognize his support of St. Jude through the years.
"I have witnessed the amazing work at St. Jude and this summer concert is an opportunity to raise awareness and give back to St. Jude and the surrounding city that has given so much," Owen says. "I look forward to celebrating with fans and uniting in the fight to end childhood cancer."
Hayes has leant his face to support St. Jude in a handful of campaigns, including This Shirt Saves Lives, for which country music stars wore the St. Jude shirt which was sold to raise money to help kids. Hayes has also visited patients on numerous occasions and performed at last year's St. Jude Rock N Roll Marathon.
"The mission of St. Jude is near and dear to my heart," Hayes says. "Having spent time in Memphis and at St. Jude, I've seen the level of support patient families need and receive for free because everything is completely covered — thanks to supporters around the globe. I am excited to return to the city and make it a night to remember."
