Kudos to COLUMBIA recording artist GRETCHEN WILSON as she wraps up her BACK TO THE BARS TOUR to benefit ST. JUDE CHILDREN'S RESEARCH HOSPITAL and the MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION. She kicked things off with a concert for KASE/AUSTIN to raise money for the MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION and then moved to ALBUQUERQUE for a KRST listener lunch and a KBQI evening concert, both for the kids at ST. JUDE's.
The next day found her in OKLAHOMA CITY performing an acoustic show for the listeners of KTST and KXXY. Then it was on to LITTLE ROCK, where the fire marshal had to turn fans away for her SRO show at the KSSN ST. JUDE's fundraiser. She wrapped things up in MEMPHIS with a sold-out show on BEALE STREET for WGKX's ST. JUDE radiothon that drew over 600 fans. Over five days, WILSON helped these radio stations to raise over $160,000 to benefit children in need.
