CHARLIE DANIELS' VOLUNTEER JAM STUNS WITH BOMBSHELL SURPRISE PERFORMANCES BY ERIC CHURCH, LYNYRD SKYNYRD AND BLACKBERRY SMOKE         40th Anniversary of Legendary Event Raises Hundreds of Thousands in Proceeds to Benefit U.S. Military and Veterans Through The Journey Home Project
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 13, 2015) – A sold-out crowd of concert-goers went wild Wednesday night at the 40th Anniversary celebration of the legendary Charlie Daniels Volunteer Jam, presented by Copperweld, at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena as seven-time GRAMMY-nominee country star Eric Church, iconic Southern rock group Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Blackberry Smoke made bombshell, unannounced appearances to honor U.S. military members and veterans.
Making waves in the music world in recent years with their blend of Southern Rock and country, Blackberry Smoke was the first surprise of the night. In the 9:00 hour, country mega-star, Eric Church, busted out on the stage in the midst of Daniels’ crowd-pleasing performance of “In America,” joining Daniels for an electrifying duet. Though both Daniels and Church hail from the state of North Carolina, the two had never shared the stage before – giving the crowd the chance to witness a magnetic inaugural moment.

Ensuring the Jam stayed enthralling to the very end, Lynyrd Skynyrd made their rip-roaring entrance at 11:30 p.m. CT and closed out the final hour of the historically boundless extravaganza with their iconic hits like "Simple Man," "Sweet Home Alabama," "Free Bird," "Gimme Three Steps,"and more.

Jamey Johnson also showed up late in the event, surprising concert-goers, yet again.
The four surprise guests joined billed acts: The Charlie Daniels Band, Ted Nugent, Trace Adkins, Alabama, Terri Clark, Billy Ray Cyrus, Colt Ford, The Grascals, Lee Greenwood, The Kentucky Headhunters, Tracy Lawrence, The Oak Ridge Boys, Ryan Weaver, Wynonna, Craig Morgan, Lee Roy Parnell, Billy Dean, Michael W. Smith, Travis Tritt, Phil Vassar, Montgomery Gentry and Blackberry Smoke, for a jam-packed line-up to remember.

Former Blackhawk pilot, U.S. veteran and rising country star, Ryan Weaver, evoked arguably the most emotional applause of the night with a performance and moving video tribute to his brother and brother-in-law, both lost in combat in the War on Iraq.
A benefit for U.S. Military veterans and their families, the 40th Anniversary Charlie Daniels Volunteer Jam raised hundreds of thousands in proceeds for the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, The Journey Home Project. It was co-founded by Daniels and his manager David Corlew, seeks to connect donors with veterans’ organizations that do the most good in meeting the health care, education and career needs of military servicemen and women and their families. Additional concert proceeds will benefit the Nashville Predators Foundation.

The Volunteer Jam's title sponsor, Henry Repeating Arms, donated a $200,000 check on-stage to The Journey Home Project. Anthony Imperato, President of Henry Repeating Arms, said, "Although we can never repay them [U.S. Military servicemen and women] what they have done for us, Henry's sponsorship of the Volunteer Jam and donation to The Journey Home Project is a small token of our gratitude."

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.
Having founded the “Volunteer Jam” concept in 1974 as a “homecoming,” event for music peers to gather in Nashville after celebrating their first hometown sellout concert, Daniels and The Charlie Daniels Band have grown the concept from its early days at the War Memorial Auditorium to the Starwood Amphitheater, to its first year at Music City’s Bridgestone Arena– it’s largest setting to-date.
The 40th Anniversary Charlie Daniels Volunteer Jam was co-hosted by conservative talk show host, Sean Hannity, and SiriusXM “The Highway” host, Storme Warren.

It is promoted in partnership with 95.5 FM Nash ICON, WSM-AM, and Henry Repeating Arms. It is presented by Copperweld and produced by David Corlew & Associates in association with Outback Concerts.

Hot on the heels of their tour with Jeff Beck and a sizeable concert run on their own, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers ZZ Top are teaming up with special guests Blackberry Smoke for the Grooves & Gravy Tour.  The tour will take the two simpatico bands through much of North America from mid-August to early October.


The Grooves & Gravy Tour stops in Memphis (Live At The Garden Summer Concert Series), Festival Trois-Rivieres en Blues in Quebec, Nashville, New Orleans, The Blues & Brews Festival in Telluride, CO, Pomona and San Diego, CA, and -- to quote the  ZZ Top’s classic “Jesus Just Left Chicago,” – “all  points in between.”


Mutual admiration between the bands is strong, who both share Southern roots. “We’re looking forward to getting out there with the Blackberry Smoke guys,” declared ZZ Top singer/guitarist Billy F Gibbons. “Grooves & Gravy promises to be one of the rowdiest outings of the year so come on out and get crazy with us.”


Likewise, Blackberry Smoke lead singer/guitarist Charlie Starr proclaimed, “We can’t wait to go out and make music with the legendary ZZ Top!”


ZZ Top is an anomaly in the world of rock - singer/guitarist Billy F Gibbons, bassist/singer Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard, aka “the man with no beard,” have been the most consistently stable lineup ever in the entire genre. For more than 45 years, “that little ol’ band from Texas” has been putting out albums (25 million U.S. sales to date) and touring relentlessly, showing no signs of slowing down.


Blackberry Smoke, who formed in Atlanta, GA in 2000, have been making waves in the music world in recent years, playing a blend of Southern rock and country rock to enthusiastic audiences. No strangers to rigorous touring, they headlined multiple U.S. tours and have also been the supporting act for Zac Brown Band, Eric Church and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Blackberry Smoke have recently signed with Rounder Records, who released the group’s fourth album Holding All the Roses this past February.
