This year’s annual Volunteer Jam concert has become an all-star tribute to Charlie Daniels after his passing last summer.
Volunteer Jam – A Musical Salute to Charlie Daniels was scheduled to happen in Nashville later this month, but due to current situations it has been moved to this summer.
David Corlew of David Corlew and Associates, Charlie Daniels’ longtime manager announced that this year’s Volunteer Jam will be rescheduled due to COVID-19 concerns, “As much as we are disappointed that we have to move the Volunteer Jam, we appreciate the fans sticking with us,” David added, “We want to make sure everyone stays safe.”
The 2021 Volunteer Jam: A Musical Salute to Charlie Daniels, will now take place Wednesday, August 18 at 7:00 p.m. C/T at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
The long list of stars that will be at the event later this summer has also increased – Randy Travis, Chris Young and Lorrie Morgan are among the 6 newly added artists to join Alabama, Ricky Skaggs, Trace Adkins, Gretchen Wilson, The Marshall Tucker Band and many, many more.
The Charlie Daniels Band performed the first Volunteer Jam on October 4, 1974, at the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, marking the beginning of the tradition. Over the Jam‘s four-decade history, Daniels and his band played alongside superstar guests that included Garth Brooks, Billy Joel, Tammy Wynette, Don Henley, The Allman Brothers Band, Billy Ray Cyrus, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and more.
