Charlie Daniels Sets Date For 40th Volunteer Jam

Charlie Daniels has invited a long list of classic country and country-rock artists to celebrate the 40th anniversary of his Volunteer Jam.

The first Volunteer Jam was held on October 4, 1974 at Nashville’s War Memorial Auditorium and was followed the next year by Volunteer Jam II at the Middle Tennessee State University. That second show was made into the movie The First Full-Length Southern Rock Motion Picture.

Jams III through X were held back at Nashville’s War Memorial and featured performances from a wide variety of musical genres. One of the highlights of those years was the 1979 show when Lynyrd Skynyrd reunited for the first time since the 1977 plane crash that killed a number of members of the band.

Later shows were held at the Starwood Amphitheater and, for the 40th anniversary show, at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

Scheduled for August 12, Daniels has already lined up an impressive list of performers including the Outlaws, the Kentucky Headhunters, Montgomery Gentry, Travis Tritt, Lee Roy Parnell and Billy Ray Cyrus.

Tickets for the show go on sale on January 30 at 10 AM.
