Alan Jackson Headlining Cancer Charity Benefit Tonight

3/20/2013

Alan Jackson is singing out against cancer. The country star is the headliner for the 5th annual Stars Go Blue benefit concert supporting the Colon Cancer Alliance. The cause is one that's personal to Alan. He learned what it was like to watch a loved one go through the battle when his wife, Denise, was diagnosed with the disease in 2010. He says that after receiving the shocking news, he was left feeling like there was nothing he could do to help her through her illness. Jackson adds that it was through Denise's experience that he discovered the CCA and all the work the organization does for cancer patients. The Stars Go Blue concert will take place at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium Wednesday night. Money raised through the show will go to the CCA's Blue Note Fund, which provides one-time grants to colon cancer patients with no restrictions on the use.
