Some may think it's too early to plan, but by doing so it gives us something to look forward to. Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie Daniels has announced the return of his legendary Volunteer Jam live concert. Headlined by The Charlie Daniels Band, the all-star, multi-artist event is set to take place on Tuesday, September 15 at 7 p.m. / CT at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena. Participating artists will be announced in February of next year. The event is produced by Outback Presents in association with David Corlew and Associates.
The Charlie Daniels Band performed the first Volunteer Jam on October 4, 1974, at the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, marking the beginning of a tradition. Over the Jam's four-decade history, Daniels and his band have played alongside superstar guests including Ted Nugent, The Allman Brothers Band, The Marshall Tucker Band, Billy Joel, Garth Brooks, Billy Ray Cyrus, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tammy Wynette, Roy Acuff, Carl Perkins, ALABAMA, Don Henley, Barefoot Jerry and more.
"We play over one hundred cities every year and they're all special in their own way, but when you get a chance to bring it all back home, especially when so many of your friends are joining you, it don't get much better than that," says Charlie. "Jammin' in the Guitar Town, second to none!"
From last-minute surprise guests to legendary collaborations, each Volunteer Jam is a special experience. "The jam is unique in so many ways," notes Daniels' manager David Corlew. "Multi-act shows are common these days, but none offer the opportunity to interact with the other acts, literally by jamming with a plethora of artists and musicians. It's Charlie Daniels at his best!"
