The legendary entertainer just announced that the iconic event will take place Tuesday, September 15 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and that tickets go on sale this Friday, December 20.
“We play over one hundred cities every year and they’re all special in their own way, but when you get a chance to bring it all back home, especially when so many of your friends are joining you, it don’t get much better than that,” Daniels shared in a statement. “Jammin’ in the Guitar Town, second to none!”
Since its inception in 1974, the Volunteer Jam has delivered one-of-a-kind performances, special collaborations and surprise guests. 2020 will be no different.
The 2020 Volunteer Jam lineup will be announced in February 2020. Previous shows have featured artists such as Garth Brooks, Billy Joel, Billy Ray Cyrus, Alabama, Don Henley and many more.
