On Nov. 30, 2016, Charlie Daniels will continue to celebrate in a big way! This fall, Charlie will officially be inducted into The Country Music Hall of Fame and soon after, all of Nashville will be celebrating his 80th birthday during the 2016 rendition of his historic Birthday Volunteer Jam. In addition to The Charlie Daniels Band, the highly-anticipated 80th Birthday Jam will bring select special guests to Bridgestone Arena, including Kid Rock, comedian Larry the Cable Guy, and three more acts to be announced in the coming months. Tickets for the much anticipated event go on sale to the general public Friday, May 13 at 10:00am CST at all Ticketmaster locations and the Bridgestone Arena Box Office. Ticket prices will start at $25.00.
“This year, I combined two milestones, my 80th birthday and the Volunteer Jam. It’s pretty amazing that we’re both alive and kicking and still going strong. Ain’t it good to be alive and be in Tennessee?” said Charlie Daniels.
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. For more info on The Journey Home Project, please visit: thejourneyhomeproject.org.
