Chris Stapleton Joins Kid Rock & Larry the Cable Guy for Charlie Daniels’ Annual Volunteer Jam

Haven’t you always dreamed about seeing Chris Stapleton, Kid Rock and Larry the Cable Guy on one stage together? Dream no more. On Nov. 30, the trio will help Charlie Daniels celebrate his 80th birthday at the 41st annual Volunteer Jam at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

Since 1974, Charlie has been bringing his musician and celebrity friends together on a “volunteer” basis to “jam,” while raising money for worthy causes. A portion of the proceeds from this year’s event will go to the The Journey Home Project, a nonprofit co-founded by charlie that helps veterans of the United States Armed Forces.

“This is going to be one of them magic evenings,” said Charlie in a press release. “I’m really looking forward to jamming with Chris Stapleton. I’m looking forward to just getting onstage with him and some other pickers and just let the music take us wherever it wants to go.”

Stay tuned. More musical acts will be announced soon.

Tickets are on sale now and range from $25 to $80.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
