"The Volunteer Jam was very important to Charlie in many ways," explains Daniels' longtime manager and friend David Corlew. "Most of all, it's a great opportunity to get together with other artists and musicians and play. In spirit, he will be with us. The CDB family is very thankful for Mike Smardak, Outback Presents, Tony Conway and the team for moving forward with this year's Jam tribute. It will be an epic night for all."
“It is an honor to be part of such an amazing project in our great city of Nashville, showcasing not only wonderful country music but more importantly, celebrating the lifelong vision of a man like Charlie Daniels," adds Outback Presents Director of Production David Lower. "He was one of the largest personalities in country music and used his voice not only to bring country artists together but also to champion so many great humanitarian causes during his lifetime. Charlie especially loved the military and its selfless members who often are neglected and forgotten when they come back from their time serving. I look forward to being part of the great tradition of the Volunteer Jam this year and hopefully into the future."
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.
