ALABAMA, Chris Young, Lee Brice, Sara Evans and Travis Tritt have been added to the lineup for this year’s Volunteer Jam XX, set for March 7 at Bridgestone Arena. The concert event and tribute to its founder, Charlie Daniels, will also include Alison Krauss, Billy F Gibbons of ZZ Top, Blackberry Smoke, Bobby Bare, Chris Janson, Chuck Leavell, Eddie Montgomery of Montgomery Gentry, Jamey Johnson, Justin Moore, The Oak Ridge Boys, Ricky Skaggs, and a performance from Daniels himself. More special guests will be announced in the coming weeks.
“This year we get back to basics, back to the free form rocking traditions the Volunteer Jam was known for,” says Daniels of the upcoming show. “I’m planning a jam at the last part of the show that will blow the roof off Bridgestone. And we’ve got the pickers coming this year that can make that happen big time.”
Don Was will serve as music director for the show, presiding over a house band that includes Chuck Leavell and Kenny Aronoff. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com, by phone at 800-745-3000, at all Ticketmaster locations, and the Bridgestone Arena box office. A portion of the proceeds from 2018’s Volunteer Jam will be donated to The Journey Home Project, a non-profit co-founded by Daniels and manager David Corlew to help Veterans.
