Star-Studded Country Event to Benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

NASHVILLE, TN – iHeartMedia Nashville’s The BIG 98, Nashville’s No. 1 Station For New Country, will hold the sixth annual Songs & Stories for St. Jude on Sunday, April 8 at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville. The live concert and auction will raise funds to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a leading children’s hospital pioneering research and treatments for kids with cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

This year, acclaimed songwriters Chris DeStefano, JT Harding, Jon Nite and Matt Jenkins will tell stories about their songs and perform them. Combined, these writers have produced multiple hits for artists such as Carrie Underwood, Brett Eldredge, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney and many more.

The evening’s event will include a silent auction featuring autographed memorabilia, items donated and signed by Country artists and exclusive experiences, such as signed Jack Daniels memorabilia, signed canvas art, and exclusive St. Jude nights at the local sports arenas. Songs & Stories for St. Jude will be hosted by Amy Paige and Tige & Daniel, on-air personalities for The BIG 98.

“I’m so proud of this event and Team BIG 98,” said Amy Paige. “Through the gift of storytelling, Songs & Stories provides our listeners with an opportunity to give back and show support for the life-saving work being done at St. Jude.”

Through Songs & Stories for St. Jude and other fundraising events, The BIG 98 has raised over $9 million to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in the last 10 years.
