2021 Volunteer Jam Adds Country Music Icon Travis Tritt to All-Star Line-Up

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

Volunteer Jam – A Musical Salute to Charlie Daniels was scheduled to happen in Nashville earlier this year, but due to quarantine and COVID related situations it was moved to August 18th.

That move has now allowed an already jam-packed line-up to become even better as country music icon Travis Tritt is now scheduled to appear.

Travis says, “I’m so thrilled to be a part of this year’s Volunteer Jam, for many years, Charlie Daniels was kind enough to personally invite and include me in the Volunteer Jam, and it was always a highlight. I’m sure that this year will also be very special as we pay tribute to the music and the legacy of Charlie Daniels and the CDB. I can’t wait!”

The Volunteer Jam line-up also includes, ALABAMA, The Marshall Tucker Band, Ricky Skaggs, Trace Adkins, Larry Steve & Rudy: The Gatlin Brothers, Chris Young, Randy Travis, Lorrie Morgan, Exile, Michael W. Smith, Big & Rich, Anthony Castagna, CeCe Winans, Gretchen Wilson, Cowboy Troy, Keb’ Mo’, The Outlaws, 38 Special, Junior Brown, The Allman Betts Band, Cedric Burnside, Jenny Tolman, the Atlanta Rhythm Section, Travis Denning, Mickey Gilley, Johnny Lee, Rhett Akins, Scooter Brown Band, The SteelDrivers, Pure Prairie League and comedian Dusty Slay. Daniels’ longtime band The Charlie Daniels Band will also perform to honor its legendary frontman.

The 2021 Volunteer Jam: A Musical Salute to Charlie Daniels will take place Wednesday, August 18, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. CT at Bridgestone Arena.

Tickets are on sale now at ticketmaster.com and the Bridgestone Arena box office.

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.
