It might be the only case where people from Saskatchewan will ever cheer for a group called The Stampeders.
The Canadian rock trio — not the CFL football team — is headlining the 42nd annual Telemiracle on March 3.
The Stampeders will be joined by Manitoba-based country singer Don Amero, while TSN analyst and Green Zone contributor Glen Suitor will also be part of the fundraiser for the first time.
Telemiracle is put together every year by The Kinsmen Foundation, raising millions of dollars to help people cover medical expenses and equipment they can’t afford.
This year’s broadcast will be televised from Regina’s Conexus Arts Centre, featuring over 60 performances from Saskatchewan artists.
Among the returning acts are Jess Moskaluke, The Hunter Brothers, Sask Express, Big Daddy Taz, Brad Johner and the Johner Boys and Beverley Mahood.
Chris Henderson and Jil Straker will also make appearances.
Nutrien is contributing to the 2018 show as well, committing to match donations up to $150,000 for the event.
Telemiracle 42 is set to introduce a new online pre-show this year, running for two-and-a-half hours before the main performances start at 9 p.m.
