Overshadowed by the hubbub surrounding the Luke Bryan incident, the Charlie Daniels 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam on Nov. 30 was a tremendous night of music that benefited The Journey Home Project, an organization that supports U.S. military veterans.
In addition to a surprise appearance by Randy Travis to help present Charlie with a humanitarian award, the 15,784 capacity crowd at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena enjoyed a number of standout performances from the all-star cast that included 3 Doors Down, Larry the Cable Guy, Luke Bryan, Kid Rock, Travis Tritt, Chris Stapleton and Charlie.
Highlights of the show included Travis Tritt’s “Here’s a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares), Chris Stapleton’s “Whiskey and You,” Kid Rock’s “All Summer Long,” Luke Bryan’s “Play It Again” and Charlie Daniels’ “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.”
“Looking back over my 50-plus-year career, this is among the top five shows I have ever done in my entire life, Volunteer Jam 2016,” said Charlie.
