Chris Stapleton shared a heartfelt cover of Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance” in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The performance aired on The Bobby Bones Show as part of the nationally-syndicated radio program’s annual two-day Radiothon, which raised $2.25 million on December 3rd and 4th.

Stapleton was accompanied by his wife, Morgane, who provided beautiful harmonies for the stripped-down, acoustic performance.

To date, The Bobby Bones Show has helped generate over $16.25 million for St. Jude.

“I say it all the time, but none of this is possible without the passion of the #BTeam,” Bones said. “Supporting the kids and families at St. Jude is so important to us and I’m so grateful all of you show up year after year and make this event so incredible.”

Those who would like to join The Bobby Bones Show in supporting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital can become a Partner in Hope by clicking HERE.

Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food—because all they should worry about is helping their child live.
