Previously announced as appearing at the annual event supporting military families are Travis Tritt, Montgomery Gentry, Billy Ray Cyrus, Kentucky HeadHunters, the Outlaws, and Lee Roy Parnell.  

Hosting the event will be Fox News’ Sean Hannity and GMC “Headline Country” host Storme Warren.

For the first time in the Volunteer Jam’s history the event will take place at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.  The big day is Aug. 12.

Beginning in 1974 as a way for the Charlie Daniels Band to celebrate its first hometown sellout concert, the Volunteer Jam’s history includes a two-hour TV special produced by dick clark productions and being aired worldwide via Voice Of America.

“I’m very excited to continue the Jam tradition,” Daniels said.  “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.”

Proceeds from the 2015 Charlie Daniels Volunteer Jam will benefit The Journey Home Project, a non-profit connecting donors to veterans’ organizations that can help out with health care.  The chairman of the board of The Journey Home Project is none other than Daniels himself.

Tickets start at $17.88 and a limited number of VIP packages are available.  General onsales launch Jan. 30 at 10 a.m. CST.  Visit for more information.
