Charlie Daniels‘ annual Volunteer Jam will continue in 2021, as a tribute to the late Country Music Hall of Fame member, who died July 6 at age 83.
The 2021 Volunteer Jam is set for Monday, Feb. 22 at 7 p.m. CT at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, with ALABAMA, Ricky Skaggs, Old Crow Medicine Show, Junior Brown and Cece Winans added to the previously announced lineup.
Hazel Daniels, Daniels’ wife of 55 years, believes her husband would be thrilled with adhering to the old adage “the show must go on.” “I am forever grateful for all of the love and support Charlie Jr. and I have received since Charlie’s passing,” says Hazel. “Charlie would be excited and extremely proud that his Volunteer Jam would continue. I want to express my sincere thanks to the artists paying tribute to Charlie.”
“Charlie’s entire day, week, year, and life revolved around his faith, family, and his cherished live performances,” explains Daniels’ longtime manager David Corlew. “We, as a team, 24-7, were focused on that two hours of his day, the part he loved most. There’s no better way to honor and continue his legacy than to do a show with The CDB, their music, the artists, family, friends and fans. We got this.”
The salute to Daniels will include performances by The Marshall Tucker Band, Chris Janson, Charley Pride, Larry, Steve & Rudy: The Gatlin Brothers, Big & Rich, Gretchen Wilson, Cowboy Troy, Delbert McClinton, Keb’ Mo’, The Outlaws, 38 Special, The Allman Betts Band, Cedric Burnside, Jenny Tolman, the Atlanta Rhythm Section, Travis Denning, Mickey Gilley, Johnny Lee, Rhett Akins, Scooter Brown Band, The SteelDrivers, Pure Prairie League and comedian Dusty Slay.
