Charlie Daniels’ co-founded non-profit, The Journey Home Project, hosted their annual dinner at The Palm Restaurant in Nashville on September 13th. The event, emceed by SiriusXM’s Storme Warren, raised over $100,000 with proceeds going to returning veterans and furthering awareness of the issues they face when they return home from serving the United States of America.

The program included American heroes, Mark “Oz” Geist and John “Tig” Tiegen, Buck Taylor of “Tombstone” and “Gunsmoke” fame, a performance by Ryan Weaver, Marisa Wayne of the John Wayne Foundation, and the man of the hour, celebrating his 80th Birthday, Charlie Daniels. The evening included a renowned live auction, silent auction items, the Palm’s signature Surf & Turf dinner and live entertainment.

“The yearly Journey Home Project at the Palm was, at least for me, the best yet. Raised a lot of money, had a lot of fun and made a lot of friends,” said Charlie Daniels.

“Thanks to our remarkably supportive sponsors, friends and guests, we have set a fundraising record for our organization while having an entertaining and fun evening. The Journey Home Project continues to be able to serve our veterans and returning servicemen and women thanks to the continued support through events like this, Volunteer Jam and more throughout the year,” said Mercedez Longever, The Journey Home Project Board Member.

2016 has been and continues to be one of the biggest years in Charlie Daniels career. The year began with an announcement that he would be in the Country Music Hall of Fame’s class of 2016 alongside Randy Travis and Fred Foster, the Charlie Daniels’ Band played on one of country music’s biggest stages, Nissan Stadium at CMA Festival, in June and just last week, an exhibition was announced at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum featuring artifacts from Daniels life and career. To top it all off, the southern rock legend will turn 80 years old on October 28 followed by a celebration of his birthday with friends Kid Rock, Chris Stapleton, Luke Bryan, Larry the Cable Guy, Travis Tritt and more at Charlie Daniels’ 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam on November 30. Rounding out the year, Daniels’ will have played over 100 shows in just 365 days, an astounding accomplishment at any age.

Country superstar Luke Bryan will be joining Chris Stapleton, Kid Rock, Larry The Cable Guy, and Travis Tritt to celebrate with Charlie Daniels at his 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam on November 30 at Bridgestone Arena.

Bryan, one of the biggest names in country music known for hits like “Country Girl (Shake It For Me),” “Drunk on You,” “Play It Again” and more will join Daniels on stage for what will be remembered as one of the best Volunteer Jams to date. Tickets for the much anticipated event are on sale now at all Ticketmaster locations and the Bridgestone Arena Box Office. Ticket prices start at $25.00.

Joining Volunteer Jam for the first time is Cox Media Group’s Rare Country who has signed on as an official media sponsor. RareCountry.com will provide in-depth coverage of the event, including backstage artist interviews, performance footage, and more.

“Rare Country is proud to stand alongside Charlie as he celebrates his 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam,” said Laurissa Phillips, GM, Rare Country. “This year’s incredible performance lineup is a testament to Charlie’s legendary status both on and off the stage. We look forward to providing Rare Country fans with unparalleled access to this epic event.”

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.

“This year, I will celebrate 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.

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.

Charlie Daniels’ 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam is produced by Mike Smardak of Outback Concerts in association with David Corlew & Associates and Webster & Associates.

Charlie Daniels to Release New Album ‘Night Hawk’

Charlie Daniels

Charlie Daniels has never fit into any certain label, purposely creating a sound and blend of music all his own. The new album, Night Hawk, stays true to that tradition with Daniels putting a unique spin on cowboy songs both well known and uncovered from through the years. The album will be available on August 26 at www.CharlieDaniels.com, FYE, and wherever music is sold.

Night Hawk will be available for presale on August 15 here where the first 100 autographed copies sold will also be hand numbered by Charlie Daniels himself.

“Most of our concepts about cowboys, and all things western, are mostly derived from movies and TV. Well, the truth of the matter is, the real cowboys are not glow in the dark characters who go around fighting rustlers and cleaning out saloons with their fists. The actual working cowboy is a hard working, different breed who spend endless hours in the saddle and as Louis L’Amour said, they ‘ride for the brand.’ Night Hawk is a tribute to the working cowboy and his way of life,” said Charlie Daniels.

Night Hawk is a reflection of stories from the trail told by cowboys around the campfire through the years. Many of the songs, introduced in an acoustic style, are obscure songs with deep meaningful lyrics, while some are classics presented in a new way.
