Alabama, Phil Vassar, Lee Greenwood & MORE Added to Charlie Daniels Volunteer Jam

Alabama

The star-studded line-up of performers for the Charlie Daniels 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam presented by Copperweld has expanded once again. Alabama will join forces with “God Bless The USA” icon Lee Greenwood, legendary bluegrass group The Grascals, Phil Vassar and rising newcomer and former military member, Ryan Weaver to bring an unforgettable night of entertainment to Music City on August 12th at the Bridgestone Arena.

Additional $17.68 tickets have been released and are ON-SALE NOW at Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster locations and the Bridgestone Arena box office. VIP seats located in the first several rows, which include a meet and greet with Charlie Daniels, are available on a limited basis.

In addition, a secondary stage has been added outside of the Bridgestone Arena for concert-goers to enjoy even more great music from several soon-to-be-announced performers — some of which will also perform on the main stage. A full line-up along with times will be announced soon!

These artists join forces with previously announced superstars: Trace Adkins, Ted Nugent, Travis Tritt, Billy Ray Cyrus, Colt Ford, Montgomery Gentry, The Kentucky Headhunters, Tracy Lawrence, Craig Morgan, Michael W. Smith, The Oak Ridge Boys, The Outlaws, Lee Roy Parnell, as well as celebrity hosts Sean Hannity and Storme Warren all for one purpose — to support the needs of American veterans through The Journey Home Project. As Chairman of the Board of The Journey Home Project, Charlie Daniels works through the non-profit organization to connect donors to veterans’ organizations that can help meet their health care, education and career needs.

In line with the event’s mission to raise awareness and support for our nation’s military, this year’s Volunteer Jam will bring a strong sense of patriotism and honor to former military members, as former active duty Blackhawk Helicopter Pilot, Chief Warrant Officer 3, and rising country star Ryan Weaver shares his story of his brother and brother-in-law’s amazing sacrifices that have fueled his fire to achieve his dreams in country music. A combat veteran in the U.S. Military, Ryan said, “After I lost my brother Aaron, who was tragically killed in combat by enemy fire, I realized that I was letting my dreams pass me idly by, and although it is unfortunate that it took a sacrifice and a loss like that to make me see that, it really pushed me to chase my dream. His sacrifice, and my brother-in-law, Randy’s, sacrifice in 2013, have fueled my fire to achieve success in this amazing business.” In a special video presentation and performance, he will help to pay tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, and further remind concert-goers of the true purpose of the event — to support the needs of our nation’s veterans through The Journey Home Project.

The 2015 Charlie Daniels Volunteer Jam will also benefit The Predators Foundation, which is devoted to funneling the excitement of professional sports towards the needs of the community.
