Brothers, sisters, friends and fans, we cannot wait to see all of you in Europe over the next few weeks. It has been such a great source of pride for the band and crew to make the journey over to meet and play for all of you. We would like to address the topic of bootlegging Blackberry Smoke merchandise at our shows. We have noticed over the past few years that the amount of bootlegged merchandise outside of the venues has grown to a disturbing level. It is sales of our official merchandise that keeps us able to support our crew and travel from show to show. We hope you will not only avoid purchasing goods from non-official Blackberry Smoke sellers, but please also let them know we don't appreciate the theft of our property. We will also NOT be signing any of the unofficial merchandise. Keep in mind the only official quality Blackberry Smoke merchandise will be sold inside of the venue and not on the streets outside and at our online store HERE. We can't thank you all enough for the support you have shown us, see you all soon!

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.
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.
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.
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.
