Chris Stapleton Joins All-Star Lineup At Bridgestone Arena On November 30th As Part Of Charlie Daniels’ 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam
CHRIS STAPLETON JOINS ALL-STAR LINEUP AT BRIDGESTONE ARENA ON NOVEMBER 30TH AS PART OF CHARLIE DANIELS 80TH BIRTHDAY VOLUNTEER JAM
Tickets On Sale NOW Starting at $25
Stapleton will be joining forces with Rock and Roll superstar Kid Rock and comedy standout Larry The Cable Guy to help Charlie Daniels celebrate his 80th birthday on November 30 at Bridgestone Arena with a performance at the Charlie Daniels 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam.
“This is going to be one of them magic evenings,” says Charlie Daniels. “I’m really looking forward to jamming with Chris Stapleton. I’m looking forward to just getting on stage with him and some other pickers and just let the music take us wherever it wants to go.”
After a star-studded 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam last year, this year’s celebration event will feature The Charlie Daniels Band and a select bunch of their favorite musicians and entertainers on stage for an exhilarating event for the ages. Since 1974, Daniels has commissioned his musical friends and peers to come together on a “volunteer” basis to hang out, “jam” together, and entertain crowds in an unconventional, laid-back fashion unknown to any other concert event — all while dedicating concert proceeds to worthy causes. This year’s event will feature extra special “jam” sessions with some of Charlie’s most prolific friends who want to celebrate the soon-to-be Country Music Hall of Famer, his birthday, and his many accomplishments. A portion of the proceeds from the night will go to the The Journey Home Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit co-founded by Daniels and manager, David Corlew, to help Veterans of the United States Armed Forces.

Charlie Daniels’ 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam is produced by Mike Smardak of Outback Concerts in association with David Corlew & Associates and Webster & Associates. With a career spanning over 50 years and exceeding 20 million in sales worldwide Charlie Daniels is the quintessential Southerner with a healthy dose of Wild West Cowboy. For decades, he has connected with his millions of fans in the varying genres of music that reflect his steadfast refusal to label his music as anything other than the “Charlie Daniels Band” sound — music that is now sung around the fire at 4-H Club and scout camps, helped elect an American President, and been popularized on a variety of radio formats. Having celebrated multiple GRAMMY® Awards, CMA Awards, ACM Awards, BMI Awards, GMA Dove Awards, CMA Awards, his list of accolades is broad. Six of his albums have been RIAA Certified Multi-Platinum® and he has achieved a platinum-selling single in his iconic fiddle-ridden hit, “Devil Went Down To Georgia.” An outspoken American Patriot and strong supporter of the U.S. Military, Daniels’ talked-about Volunteer Jam concerts are world-famous musical extravaganzas featuring artists like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ted Nugent, Trace Adkins, Alabama and others, all on one stage for one purpose – to raise funds for our U.S. Military. His 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam held in 2015 raised over $300,000 for The Journey Home Project, a non-profit veteran’s assistance organization, which he co-founded with his manager, David Corlew.
