MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Fans gathered at the annual John Rich and Friends concert, which benefits St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Downtown Memphis.

The event at Cannon Center for the Performing Arts raises money for hospital every year.

Country singer John Rich says events like this show just how much people are willing to help the hospital.

"It speaks volumes that the artist will pull up shop and come to Memphis," said Rich. "This has been a touring season on top of everything else this summer. But, when I called these artists and tell them it's for St. Jude, I always get yes from everybody."

Frankie Ballard, Big & Rich, Lee Greenwood, and Lorrie Morgan joined Rich on stage to show their support for St. Jude.
