Charlie Daniels 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam takes place on the singer’s 80th birthday
Chris Stapleton will be joining forces with Rock and Roll superstar Kid Rock and comedy standout Larry The Cable Guy to help Charlie Daniels celebrate his 80th birthday on November 30th at Bridgestone Arena with a performance at the Charlie Daniels 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam.
“This is going to be one of them magic evenings,” says Charlie Daniels. “I’m really looking forward to jamming with Chris Stapleton. I’m looking forward to just getting on stage with him and some other pickers and just let the music take us wherever it wants to go.”
After a star-studded 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam last year, this year’s celebration event will feature The Charlie Daniels Band and a select bunch of their favorite musicians and entertainers on stage for an exhilarating event for the ages. Since 1974, Daniels has commissioned his musical friends and peers to come together on a “volunteer” basis to hang out, “jam” together, and entertain crowds in an unconventional, laid-back fashion unknown to any other concert event — all while dedicating concert proceeds to worthy causes. This year’s event will feature extra special “jam” sessions with some of Charlie’s most prolific friends who want to celebrate the soon-to-be Country Music Hall of Famer, his birthday, and his many accomplishments.
A portion of the proceeds from the night will go to the The Journey Home Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit co-founded by Daniels and manager, David Corlew, to help Veterans of the United States Armed Forces.
Charlie Daniels’ 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam is produced by Mike Smardak of Outback Concerts in association with David Corlew & Associates and Webster & Associates.
