Once a year, country music artists, record labels, managers, songwriters, and radio stations team up to help support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

XL Country 100.7 is hosting its annual two-day radiothon, Feb. 16 and 17 from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Last year, the XL Nation raised  $108,759 for St. Jude.
