The Volunteer Jam
The Volunteer Jam was the annual Charlie Daniels Band concert first held on October 4, 1974, at the War Memorial Auditorium in
Nashville, Tennessee This was the beginning of a tradition.

The 2nd Volunteer Jam was released in the form of a movie. It was billed as the "First Southern Rock movie," even appearing in
theaters across the US. The movie was re-released on DVD in 2007. Regulars at the Nashville Volunteer Jam concerts included
George McCorkle, Jimmy Hall, Dickey Betts, Henry Paul, Dobie Gray, Toy Caldwell, and others.

In 1979, Lynyrd Skynyrd reunited for the first time since the 1977 plane crash, with several members of the Charlie Daniels Band.
CDB keyboardist Taz Digregorio took lead vocals on "Call Me The Breeze" followed by an extended instrumental version of "Free
Bird." In 1987 Lynyrd Skynyrd returned to the stage for only the second time, also at the Volunteer Jam.

Each of the Nashville concerts featured a long list of special guests appearing onstage with Charlie and his band 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 and many more. Many of these concerts were broadcast live on the
radio. The Volunteer Jam on nationwide TV included a live broadcast on the Jerry Lewis Telethon and a Dick Clark produced
network special.

A "Volunteer Jam Tour" including the Charlie Daniels Band, the Outlaws and the Marshall Tucker Band toured the United States in
2007. The Nashville show scheduled for May 19, 2007 was cancelled, due to the closing of Nashville's Starwood Amphitheater
