Charlie Daniels 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam Just Got Bigger!

Volunteer Jam

Just when you think Charlie Daniels 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam can’t get any bigger, additional megastar performers are announced. Trace Adkins, Ted Nugent, Tracy Lawrence, Craig Morgan, Colt Ford, The Oak Ridge Boys and Michael W. Smith will all be appearing alongside the previously-announced Travis Tritt, Montgomery Gentry, Billy Ray Cyrus, The Kentucky Headhunters, The Outlaws and Lee Roy Parnell. The megastars will bind together to support the needs of American veterans through The Journey Home Project. Tickets to the once-in-a-lifetime event will be available beginning Friday, January 30 at 10 a.m. CST at the Bridgestone Arena box office and all Ticketmaster locations. Due to tremendous growth over its forty years of sell-out success, the legendary Volunteer Jam will take place for the first time at the Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville on August 12, 2015 and will be hosted by Sean Hannity and Storme Warren.

In 1974, The Charlie Daniels Band hosted the first-ever Volunteer Jam as a way of celebrating their first hometown sellout concert, never knowing how big the event would become — from being aired as a two-hour TV special produced by Dick Clark Productions, to earning national attention through the Jerry Lewis Telethon, to being broadcast LIVE around the world on Voice of America, the event experienced exponential growth with each passing year.

“I’m very excited to continue the Jam tradition,” said Daniels. I hope to see more Nashville Volunteer Jams in the future. I’m very, very excited to continue the Jam tradition forty years later. Ain’t it good to be alive, and be in Tennessee.”

The 2015 Charlie Daniels Volunteer Jam will benefit The Journey Home Project, the non-profit organization that Daniels serves as Chairman of the Board and whose mission is to connect donors to veterans’ organizations that can help meet their health care, education and career needs, as well as The Predators Foundation, which is devoted to funneling the excitement of professional sports towards the needs of the community.

Charlie Daniels 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam presented by Copperweld is produced by David Corlew & Associates in association with Outback Concerts. 95.5 FM Nash ICON and WSM-AM serve as the official radio partners. Ticket prices start at $17.68 with limited VIP packages available.

Trace Adkins Keeps the Reason for the Season Alive with Christmas Tour


On Friday, Trace Adkins brought his unique holiday experience, The Christmas Show 2014 Tour to TPAC.


The Christmas Show features historical and humorous narration and Celtic carols performed by Adkins and his twelve-piece “Sarepta Symphony.” This year, renowned Scottish singer, Alyth McCormack, also joined Adkins on stage.

Unlike many Christmas shows, Trace’s brings a unique experience and perspective. Steering clears of a holiday spectacle of flashiness and materialism. Trace’s show has a down-home,low-key vibe that centers around the true meaning of the season, Christ’s birth. The celtic musicianship and musical arrangements give old carols a new sound.

It’s obvious Trace puts his heart and soul into the show, giving background to the songs we’ve been singing for years, and explaining the true reason behind each tune.

Stand-out performances of the night were “Silent Night” and “Little Drummer Boy” mainly because these timeless classics were given new life with the unique sound and arrangement but still keeping them inspired by their original forms.

Trace relaxed vibe, good sense of humor, and unique Christmas concept gave everyone at Tennessee’s Performing Arts Center a little calm in the midst of the holiday storm surrounding us.

Remaining dates on Trace’s Christmas Tour include:
12/16 Memphis, TN The Orpheum Theatre
12/17 Atlanta, GA Atlanta Symphony Hall
12/18 Mobile, AL Saenger Theatre
12/19 Jacksonville, FL Florida Theater
