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.

Alabama to Take the CMA Fest Stage for First Time in Nearly 20 Years!

Alabama

Alabama announced last night via Twitter (@TheAlabamaBand) their triumphant return after 19 years to kick off the sold-out Nightly Concerts at LP Field Thursday, June 5 (8:00 PM/CT) during 2014 CMA Music Festival in Nashville.

Celebrating their 40th anniversary as a group, it has been 19 years since they performed at Fan Fair, now CMA Music Festival. The last performance of the band was in 1995 when the event was held at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds. The Country Music Hall of Fame members are the most awarded band in Country Music history with 230 accolades to their credit, along with 43 No. 1 hits, and 74 million records sold.

“We are excited and looking forward to performing as a group for the first time in 19 years at LP Field for CMA Music Festival,” stated Alabama’s Jeff Cook, Teddy Gentry, and Randy Owen. “It has always been about the fans with us, and we realized that the best way to celebrate and share our 40th anniversary was to do what we do best – play live music for the fans that we love at the biggest Country Music festival in the world.”

“The Nightly Concerts feature an amazing lineup of performers and provide a terrific opportunity for our fans to reconnect – or discover for the first time – artists who have contributed on a large scale to the foundation and success of the format today,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer.

Artists performing as part of the Nightly Concerts at LP Field include Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert, Hunter Hayes, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Thomas Rhett, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton, The Band Perry, Keith Urban, Chris Young,and Zac Brown Band.

Several legacy acts are making appearances including Charlie Daniels Band, who last performed at the Festival in 2006 and last year the fiddle master performed with Brad Paisley during his set at LP Field; Sara Evans, who opened the Festival at Riverfront in 2013; and Travis Tritt, who last performed at the Festival in 2005.

Performing the National Anthem will be Danielle Bradbery, Home Free, and young musicians from the W.O. Smith Nashville Community Music School, which is a beneficiary of The CMA Foundation’s Keep the Music Playing music education charitable campaign.

The Ultimate Country Music Fan Experience began in 1972 as Fan Fair®, bringing 5,000 fans to Nashville’s Municipal Auditorium. More than 40 years later, the now legendary Festival has become the city’s signature music event. In 2014, CMA Music Festival will host visitors from every state and 22 foreign countries.
