Brett Eldredge has teamed up with rideshare service Lyft to help raise money for St. Jude Children's Hospital.

St. Jude is now part of Lyft's Round Up and Donate program, in which people who use the service can round up their fare to the next dollar and donate the difference to a charity.

Brett says, “I am so thankful to St. Jude for the opportunity to meet these incredible kids. The courage and zest for life that they have is something that will inspire me forever. Now everyone can help make an impact with Lyft’s Round Up and Donate. I hope that everyone can see how powerful and simple it is to help by donating.”

Lyft's program has raised over $4 million for various charities in its eight months in existence.

He says, “Nothing’s like the energy of a stadium show. But there’s also something about the amphitheaters, where the people are all so close. It’s like being with your friends somewhere back home, singing songs and hanging out, and having the best party of the year."

The tour kicks off with a stadium show in Tampa, Florida on April 21st and wraps up with another big field in Foxboro, Massachusetts on August 25th.
