Charlie Daniels’ birthday ‘Jam’

Charlie Daniels2016 is shaping up to be a memorable year for one of Country music’s best-loved icons. This fall, Charlie Daniels will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, and Friday, October 28 will be Charlie’s 80th birthday. A month later, on November 30, he will host his annual Volunteer Jam that has been a multi-genre musical extravaganza since 1974. This year’s event, designated ‘Charlie Daniels 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam,’ will take place in Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and will include numerous special guests including Kid Rock and Larry the Cable Guy. A portion of the night’s profits will go to The Journey Home Project, a 501c(3) non profit to help Veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces. You can check out a cool interactive Timeline of all the Volunteer Jams, starting with the first one in 1974 here.
