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 a tradition. Over the Jam's four-decade history, Daniels and his band played alongside superstar guests including Ted Nugent, The Allman Brothers Band, The Marshall Tucker Band, Billy Joel, Garth Brooks, Billy Ray Cyrus, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tammy Wynette, Roy Acuff, Carl Perkins, ALABAMA, Don Henley, Barefoot Jerry and more. Many of these concerts were broadcast live on the radio. The Volunteer Jam on national television included a live broadcast on the Jerry Lewis Telethon and a Dick Clark-produced network special. The Volunteer Jam is also the title of a series of albums released by Daniels of performances from the late 1970s and early 1980s at Volunteer Jam shows.

I Love Charlie Daniels
It was truly an honor to get to meet Charlie D, meet & Greet at the 2018 Arkansas State Fair and Simmons Bank Arena, formally known as Verizon Arena on March 23rd 2019. The very first Time I saw Charlie was in 2010 or 2011 in Lansing Michigan at Common Ground Festival. I've seen Charlie 4 or 5 times. .. And it was sure a dream come true.
