Wynonna and Terri Clark to Perform at Charlie Daniels’ 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam

Volunteer Jam

On August 12, Charlie Daniels’ 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam will usher in music fans from all over the world to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena for a historic, colossal concert to benefit U.S. veterans in need through the (501)(c)(3) non-profit organization, The Journey Home Project.

Yesterday, Charlie Daniels announces the award-winning hit-maker WYNONNA and multi-No. 1 hit-maker and Canadian guitar-slinger, TERRI CLARK, will join the already-announced mega line-up which includes: Charlie Daniels and The Charlie Daniels Band, Ted Nugent, Trace Adkins, Alabama, Montgomery Gentry, The Oak Ridge Boys, Tracy Lawrence, Travis Tritt, Craig Morgan, Phil Vassar, Lee Greenwood, Billy Ray Cyrus, Colt Ford, Michael W. Smith, The Grascals, The Kentucky Headhunters, Ryan Weaver, The Outlaws and Lee Roy Parnell. In addition, several head-turning SURPRISE guests will add even more excitement to the event.

Tickets are still available to the public at Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster locations, and the Bridgestone Arena box office for $17.68 and up.

The Henry Rifles Stage, which will be located on the Bridgestone Plaza, will host a free open-to-the-public, energy-packed side show for concert-goers and bystanders featuring Natalie Stovall & The Drive, The Grascals, American Hitmen, Jason D. Williams, Jesse & Noah Bellamy, Ryan Weaver, the Tucker Yochim Band, the Scooter Brown Band and the Justin McCorkle Band. Music will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. CDT.

Henry Repeating Arms, leading American-made rifle manufacturer and strong supporter of the U.S. Military, has come on board as a lead sponsor of the Jam to help heighten awareness of The Journey Home Project and its efforts to help veterans through the company’s vast consumer base of firearm collectors and enthusiasts.

“We at Henry Repeating Arms are forever indebted to those who have served our country. Although we can never repay what they have done for us, Henry’s sponsorship of the Volunteer Jam and donation to The Journey Home Project is a small token of our gratitude,” said Anthony Imperato, President of Henry Repeating Arms.

Charlie Daniels, who has been hosting The Volunteer Jam in Nashville since its inaugural start in 1974 said, “It’s really something to see my music peers and friends come together this year to perform with little incentive other than to help raise funding and give back to those who have served. Few sacrifices are greater than those of our U.S. Military, so it makes me proud to have witnessed this event come together in such a big way in 2015. We as U.S. citizens can never repay military members and veterans for what they have and continue to do for us, but I hope at least this concert can serve a small role in showing them our great appreciation.”

The Charlie Daniels 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam will benefit The Predators Foundation as well as The Journey Home Project, a non-profit organization co-founded by Charlie Daniels and his long-time manager David Corlew. Initiated in 2013, The Journey Home Project serves to connect donors to veterans’ organizations that are proven to effectively help to meet the health care, education and career needs of military servicemen and women and their families.

Event-goers can expect an evening full of opportunity to honor veterans in attendance. Former Blackhawk pilot and rising country artist, Ryan Weaver, who lost both his brother and brother-in-law to enemy fire, is scheduled to perform a moving tribute.

Tickets can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster locations and at the Bridgestone Arena box office. A limited number of VIP seats located in the first several rows, which include a pre-show VIP reception with Charlie Daniels, are still available.

The event will be hosted by conservative talk show host Sean Hannity and SiriusXM The Highway’s Storme Warren. It is presented by Copperweld and produced by David Corlew & Associates in association with Outback Concerts. 95.5 NASH Icon and WSM-AM serve as the official radio partners.

Billy Carson is behind bars facing homicide and felony reckless endangerment charges after he drove his car through a crowd at a Trace Adkins concert in Huntsville, TN striking four people, killing one.

Authorities say the confrontation started as a fight that sent Billy to his SUV to retrieve a gun. Instead, he got behind the wheel and drove his 4-Runner into a crowd, killing Tony Farrell and injuring Farrell’s son.

Billy Carson will appear in court on May 27th. Luckily, most fans had already left, or the incident could’ve been a lot worse.

As part of the Opry’s 90th Anniversary Celebration, the Opry is celebrating country’s heart throughout the year, bringing its biggest stars and loyal fans together to support nine important causes over the course of nine months in an initiative called “Cause For Applause.”  May at the Opry is a month-long celebration of U.S. troops and their families in partnership with the USO and MusiCorps. A percentage of the proceeds from May Opry ticket sales goes to the cause when fans mention the code “SALUTE.”

In celebration of the cause, the Opry recently unveiled a new “Salute The Troops” tee collection from the Selma Drye by Kellie Pickler line, the Opry’s first artist-curated collection. A percentage of the sales from the collection will also be donated to the cause. Pickler signed tees in The Opry Shop after her Opry performance last night.

The MusiCorps Wounded Warrior Band’s Opry appearance was made possible by Humana, presenting sponsor of the Grand Ole Opry. Fans can visit opry.com/causeforapplause to learn more about the May cause partnership and additional causes to be announced throughout the year.

The Opry’s 90th Anniversary Celebration continues throughout 2015. Upcoming artist appearances include Hunter Hayes, Alison Krauss, Little Big Town, Scotty McCreery, Oak Ridge Boys, Charley Pride, Rascal Flatts, and Carrie Underwood, among many others.
