Darius Rucker's annual Darius & Friends benefit concert raised over $255,000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

This year's event, which was conducted virtually due to the pandemic, featured Rucker, Clint Black and Tracy Lawrence and was held at the Grand Ole Opry on July 30.

"When we first started talking about this year's concert, which usually takes place during the week of CMA Fest, I had the idea to make it a really fun night of '90s country," Rucker wrote on Instagram.

"Even though gathering in person for our normal show wasn't possible this year, we still wanted to do as much as we could to support the great work happening at St. Jude," he added. "I'm so thankful to my friends Clint Black and Tracy Lawrence for helping that '90s country vision still come to life, and to the folks at LiveXLive for bringing this concert to everyone's screens at home."

Rucker started the Darius & Friends benefit concert in 2009 to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The event has raised over $2 million for the hospital over the years.
