The country music community supports St. Jude in their ‘Love Music, Stop Cancer’, campaign. Find out more about the initiative here.
The 2021 ‘Love Music, Stop Cancer’ initiative brings together country musics stars and industry to raise money for St. Jude families. St. Jude, located in Memphis, Tennessee is a research hospital for children battling cancer and other deadly diseases. Perhaps the most special part about the organization is, thanks to very generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food.
Families receive the best care in the country, at no cost, making the worst and darkest days of their lives a little bit brighter – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. In addition, St Jude’s research facility and labs are open 24/7 and freely share their findings with hospitals and doctors across the country. They are working towards a world where no family ever has to hear the words “you have cancer”.
Launched more than 30 years ago, Randy Owen from the band Alabama stood up during Country Radio Seminar in Nashville and asked his friends, colleagues, and radio partners to join together to help St. Jude and the children they serve, and so, “Country Cares for St. Jude Kids” was born. The program unites more than 200 radio stations and dozens of country music artists annually to raise awareness and support for St. Jude kids.
In addition, Owen, who has been an example of compassion and support since the beginning, kick-started the beloved tradition of giving the “Angels Among Us” award to others who have shown his spirit and exceptional dedication to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
This year, the organization introduces the “Love Music, Stop Cancer” t-shirt. For a monthly donation of just $20, you can get the exclusive tee and help support this incredible cause. It costs over a million dollars daily to operate St. Jude each and every day. Donations allow St. Jude to continue to help children everywhere.
Join us and many of your favorite country artists like Carly Pearce, Brett Eldredge, Carrie Underwood, Jimmie Allen, and more in kicking cancer’s ass! #MusicGives
