For four decades, Charlie Daniels has brought together musician friends and fans to raise funds to aid U.S. veterans, military members and their families. This year’s 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam, held Aug. 12 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, raised in excess of $300,000 for The Journey Home Project.

Fans enjoyed performances from The Charlie Daniels Band, Ted Nugent, Trace Adkins, Alabama, Terri Clark, Billy Ray Cyrus, Colt Ford, The Grascals, Lee Greenwood, The Kentucky Headhunters, Tracy Lawrence, The Oak Ridge Boys, Ryan Weaver, Wynonna, Craig Morgan, Lee Roy Parnell, Billy Dean, Michael W. Smith, Travis Tritt, Phil Vassar, Montgomery Gentry, Blackberry, Bonnie Bramlett, Jimmy Hall, Tucker Yochim, Jeannie Seely, Eric Church, Billy Crain, Natalie Stovall, Jamey Johnson and Lynyrd Skynyrd, among others.

“Before we all continue on with our hectic lives, it’s important to stop and reflect on the fact that freedom is not free. We are so grateful to Charlie Daniels, his team, all of the phenomenal artists who donated their time and talent, and fans who came out to support The Journey Home Project,” said Mercedez Longever, managing director of The Journey Home project.

“It was good to see an old Tennessee Tradition come back to life, all for this great cause,” Daniels said.
