The Charlie Daniels Band’s 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam presented by Copperweld will feature performances from the Charlie Daniels BandBilly Ray Cyrus, Kentucky Headhunters, Montgomery Gentry, the Outlaws, Lee Roy Parnell and Travis Tritt. The Volunteer Jam will take place Aug. 12, 2015 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

The first Volunteer Jam was held in 1974 at War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, and included members of the Marshall Tucker Band and the Allman Brothers Band. The next year, Volunteer Jam II  took place at Murphy Center on Middle Tennessee State University’s campus. The event has grown into an annual favorite for fans and artists alike.

“We never had any idea how big it would become, broadcasting around the world and on Voice of America,” Daniels says. “We thought it was a hometown thing. We never realized it would become an international event. I hope to see more Nashville Volunteer Jams in the future.  I’m very very excited to continue the Jam tradition 40 years later. Ain’t it good to be alive and be in Tennessee.”

Tickets for the 2015 event go on sale Friday, Jan. 30 at 10 a.m. CT at the Bridgestone Arena Box Office and all Ticketmaster locations. Tickets range from $17.48 to $500 (VIP seating). Profits benefit The Journey Home Project, which helps aid veterans of the United States Armed Forces, as well as The Predators Foundation.

95.5 Nash Icon serves as the event’s official radio partner, while the event is produced and promoted by Corlew & Associates in association with Mike Smardak/Outback Concerts.
