“It is such an honor to be part of such an amazing project in our great city of Nashville, showcasing not only wonderful country music but more importantly, celebrating the lifelong vision of a man like Charlie Daniels,” Outback Presents Director of Production David Lower added.
The first-ever Volunteer Jam took place on October 4, 1974, at the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. During the course of the event’s four-decade history, Daniels and his band enjoyed the opportunity to perform alongside artists such as Garth Brooks, Billy Ray Cyrus, Billy Joel, Tammy Wynette and so many more.
