The inaugural event continues to gather the Country music industry’s biggest names and its fans for another night of record-breaking fundraising and giving back surrounded by uplifting performances. 

The Friendsgiving was hosted by The BIG 98 on-air talent, including Wayne D, Tay, Brooke Taylor and McKiddy who kept the excitement going into the night. The evening continued to center around the importance of the St. Jude mission with St. Jude cancer survivor Addie Pratt who took the stage with Brooke to share her story and shine a light on the important cause.

The BIG 98’s Friendsgiving kicked off the Thanksgiving week strong, serving as a night of inspiration and music for a dedicated cause to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude is currently headwaying their annual This Shirt Saves Lives Campaign, encouraging the public to become a supporter of the hospital and its patients, alongside the biggest celebrities and artists in Country and beyond.
