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.

Prosecutor Denies Immunity Claim In Gregg Allman Film Case


A prosecutor denies ever promising immunity to a crew member working on a film based on Gregg Allman’s autobiography. District Attorney Jackie Johnson says in court papers assistant director Hillary Schwartz was only promised that anything she said in an interview would not be used against her.

Schwartz is one of four people charged with involuntary manslaughter and trespassing after a train slammed into a railroad bridge last February where the crew was filming. A camera assistant was killed. Schwartz wants a judge to dismiss the charges, saying prosecutors offered her immunity in exchange for an interview, then charged her anyway.

Continuing the Platinum-selling artist’s exciting new music plans for 2015, Currington recently announced that he will team up with superstar Tim McGraw this summer on the sizzling cross-country SHOTGUN RIDER TOUR ’15 kicking off in June.

Directed by Peter Zavadil at Nashville’s historic Roxy Theater, the “Don’t It” video captures the energy of Currington’s dynamic live performance.

Written by the hit-making trio of Ashley Gorley, Jaren Johnston and Ross Copperman, the sultry good-time groove offers an exciting preview of Currington’s highly-anticipated new project expected later this year.
