Travis Tritt, Billy Ray Cyrus and more join 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam

On August 12, 2015, The Charlie Daniels Band’s legendary Volunteer Jam, a star-studded, multi-genre musical extravaganza that has featured artists like James Brown, Billy Joel, Garth Brooks, Don Henley and Lynyrd Skynyrd (to name a few), returns to Nashville. In addition to The Charlie Daniels Band, the highly-anticipated 40th anniversary event will bring a slew of special guests to Bridgestone Arena, including Billy Ray Cyrus, Kentucky Headhunters, Montgomery Gentry, The Outlaws, Lee Roy Parnell and Travis Tritt, with even more exciting artist announcements coming soon. And, because this is the Volunteer Jam, ticket holders can expect a few big surprises from unannounced acts.

Tickets for the once-in-a-lifetime event go on sale Friday, January 30th at 10 am CST, at the Bridgestone Arena Box Office and all Ticketmaster locations. Ticket prices will be $500 VIP / $40 / $17.68

“We never had any idea how big it would become.”

Profits from the night will go to the The Journey Home Project, a non-profit Daniels co-founded to help Veterans of the United States Armed Forces, and The Predators Foundation, which is devoted to funneling the excitement of professional sports towards the needs of this community.

“We never had any idea how big it would become,” Daniels states broadcasting around the world and on Voice of America. “We thought it was a hometown thing. We never realized it would become an international event.

“I hope to see more Nashville Volunteer Jams in the future. I’m very very excited to continue the Jam tradition 40 years later. Ain’t it good to be alive and be in Tennessee.”

The Charlie Daniels Band’s 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam presented by Copperweld is produced and promoted by Corlew & Associates in association with Mike Smardak/Outback Concerts. 95.5 Nash ICON serves as the official radio partner.
