FGL shows how Country Cares for Kids, bringing their entire tour lineup to St. Jude in Memphis 

ALSAC/St. Jude Children's Research Hospital/PR NewswireFlorida Georgia Line put on the biggest concert St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has ever seen last weekend, bringing the entire lineup of their Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour to the hospital's Memphis campus.

Dan + ShayMorgan WallenCanaan Smith, and HARDY all entertained patients and their families on Saturday prior to their show that night in Southaven, Mississippi.

After the up-close-and-personal show, the artists’ wives stuck around for a personal tour of the hospital -- which was founded by actor and comedian Danny Thomas -- while their husbands went off to work.

Country music enjoys an especially close relationship with the hospital, which works to cure childhood cancer and other diseases.  Since Alabama’s Randy Owen founded the Country Cares for Kids campaign thirty years ago, artists, fans, and radio stations have raised more than $800 million for the facility, where no family ever receives a bill.
