2011 Country Cares Radio Seminar [VIDEO]

On January 14, some of country music’s rising stars joined several of the industry’s biggest names for a weekend celebrating country radio and its support of St. Jude during the 22nd annual Country Cares for St. Jude Kids® radio seminar. About 30 artists joined legendary musician Randy Owen, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, to spend special time with the patients and their families. A highlight of the seminar weekend is the opportunity for participants to tour the hospital and hear first-hand about St. Jude from patients and their families. Among those touring the hospital and sharing their time with St. Jude families were: Ronnie Dunn, Justin Moore, Katie Armiger, Jake Owen, Casey James, Jennette McCurdy, Randy Montana, Josh Kelley, the Grascals, Darren Warren and the LoCash Cowboys. Each year, the seminar brings together representatives of the country music industry – from artists to label executives to radio station personnel – in a show of support for the lifesaving mission of St. Jude and to prepare for upcoming Country Cares radiothons. This year, more than 800 participants came to Memphis, Tennessee, to learn more about the groundbreaking research and treatment at St. Jude, meet St. Jude patient families, and attend special sessions designed to help stations conduct successful radiothons.

This year’s seminar concluded the evening of January 15 with the annual Songwriters’ Dinner. Richard C. Shadyac Jr., CEO of ALSAC, thanked country radio for its support of St. Jude and introduced Randy Owen to the crowd. The dinner also featured performances by the artists of many well-known country hits.
