2021 Volunteer Jam: A Musical Salute to Charlie Daniels Set For August

This year’s annual Volunteer Jam concert has become an all-star tribute to Charlie Daniels after his passing last summer.

Volunteer Jam – A Musical Salute to Charlie Daniels was scheduled to happen in Nashville later this month, but due to current situations it has been moved to this summer.

David Corlew of David Corlew and Associates, Charlie Daniels’ longtime manager announced that this year’s Volunteer Jam will be rescheduled due to COVID-19 concerns, “As much as we are disappointed that we have to move the Volunteer Jam, we appreciate the fans sticking with us,” David added, “We want to make sure everyone stays safe.”

The 2021 Volunteer Jam: A Musical Salute to Charlie Daniels, will now take place Wednesday, August 18 at 7:00 p.m. C/T at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

The long list of stars that will be at the event later this summer has also increased – Randy Travis, Chris Young and Lorrie Morgan are among the 6 newly added artists to join Alabama, Ricky Skaggs, Trace Adkins, Gretchen Wilson, The Marshall Tucker Band and many, many more.

The Charlie Daniels Band performed the first Volunteer Jam on October 4, 1974, at the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, marking the beginning of the tradition. Over the Jam‘s four-decade history, Daniels and his band played alongside superstar guests that included Garth Brooks, Billy Joel, Tammy Wynette, Don Henley, The Allman Brothers Band, Billy Ray Cyrus, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and more.

The 2021 Volunteer Jam: A Musical Salute to Charlie Daniels is produced by Outback Presents in association with David Corlew and Associates and Conway Entertainment Group.
Tickets are on sale now via ticketmaster.com and the Bridgestone Arena box office. Previously purchased tickets will be honored at the rescheduled date.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
