Kid Rock, Larry The Cable Guy To Join Charlie Daniels’ 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam

charlie daniels volunteer jam

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.

cma fest 2016

CMA Music Festival’s Nightly Concerts just got even bigger. CMA Announced via the CMA Music Festival app that Frankie Ballard, Clint Black, Charlie Daniels Band, Exile, Marshall Tucker Band, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Ray Stevens, and The Oak Ridge Boys will perform as part of the Nightly Concerts at Nissan Stadium.  

They join previously announced fellow Country Music stars Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Rascal Flatts, Thomas Rhett, Blake Shelton, Chris Stapleton, Cole Swindell, Steven Tyler, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Hank Williams, Jr., and Chris Young who will perform during the Festival’s Nightly Concerts at Nissan Stadium. Artists and schedules are subject to change.

Country Music Hall of Famers The Oak Ridge Boys will sing the National Anthem for the opening night of the Festival. Ballard, Marshall Tucker Band, and Stevens will perform the Anthem on each of the successive nights.

Daniels, who was announced March 29 as a 2016 Country Music Hall of Fame inductee, will lead the charge with the first set Thursday night. Thanks to the announcement on the CMA Music Festival app, fans are already clamoring over the news that Black will perform Friday night with Nitty Gritty Dirt band joining the Saturday night lineup, and Exile hitting the stage Sunday.

The 2016 CMA Music Festival runs Thursday through Sunday, June 9-12 in downtown Nashville. While the Festival boasts numerous free stages and unique fan experiences, the most anticipated events are the Nightly Concerts at Nissan Stadium, which sell out long before talent is announced.

This year’s app is now available in the App Store for iPhone and Android and includes features that allow fans to create individual concert schedules and be the first to know which of their favorite stars will be appearing on the various Festival stages.

Funds generated through CMA Music Festival ticket sales benefit music education. Since 2006, CMA and the CMA Foundation have donated more than $13.6 million to support sustainable music education initiatives across the country on behalf of the artists who participate in the event for free.

Fans who were not able to purchase tickets to the Nightly Concerts are still able to enjoy non-stop music, fan engagement, and artist experiences through numerous FREE stages and events across town and by experiencing Fan Fair X in the Music City Center.

Tickets to Fan Fair X are available now at CMAfest.com (Fan Fair X admission is included in four-day CMA Music Festival tickets). Fan Fair X tickets are $10 per day or $25 for a four-day pass.

For the second year, fans will be able to purchase a four-day pass to the Fan Fair X that includes a general admission ticket to the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum that is good for use any day in 2016. The package deal is on sale now through Friday, June 10 and costs $39.95. The combination Fan Fair X/Country Music Hall of Fame tickets are available via the Country Music Hall of Fame website, countrymusichalloffame.org, and will also be sold at their box office during the week of CMA Music Festival.

For upcoming announcements and all other info stay connected with CMA on CMAfest.com, Facebook.com/CMA, Twitter.com/CountryMusic, Instagram.com/CMA, and sign up for CMA Country Connection, CMA’s e-newsletter. Fans can also download the 2016 CMA Music Festival mobile app for iPhone or Android to view the latest artist lineups and to plan their Festival experience.
