Denim & Diamonds: St. Jude Concert Fundraiser Tonight
St. Jude season is underway here at WBKR and we are gearing up for our annual fundraising concert, Denim & Diamonds. The show is 7pm, TONIGHT at Theatre Workshop's Empress Theatre and it's going to be incredible. Check out the line-up and get your ticket info here!
KATE HASTING BAND
We are THRILLED to welcome the Kate Hasting Band! In 2015, the band was hailed an "Emerging Artist" by the CMA Music Festival. They are absolutely awesome and we are so excited they have decided to join us to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital! Here's a sneak peek of Kate Hasting Band in action . . .
Kelsey Hart joined us for Denim & Diamonds a couple of years ago as the lead vocalist of Boys of Broad. But, now, he's gone solo with "Set Your Soul on Fire," which we just added to rotation here at WBKR. We can't spill the beans, but Kelsey is poised to have an unbelievable 2016 and we're thrilled he's starting it with us at Denim & Diamonds!
Hayley Payne is one of the tristate's most talented teenagers. She's got a great voice, plays guitar, piano and knows how to write the heck out of a song. Here she is covering "Dibs" by Kelsea Ballerini . . .
Denim & Diamonds is going to feature a reunion! We are so thrilled that D.J. Potter is joining us. D.J. cowrote Jaclyn's Tailgater CD and a couple of our original songs for St. Jude, including "Saints and Angels" and "Soar." Since that time, D.J. has been songwriting in Nashville and will be along to share some of his brand new music!

Last year, Bradley joined Jaclyn and me for Sweatin' for St. Jude II. Yep! He spent 12 straight hours on a treadmill with us to help raise money for St. Jude.
