Nashville, Tenn. February 13, 2018 – Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, Lynyrd Skynyrd will make a triumphant return to the Volunteer Jam stage once again. This will be the iconic southern rock band’s sole Nashville performance before embarking on their final, two-year 2018 Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour presented by SiriusXM starting in May.

The lineup for the star-studded event includes Charlie Daniels and The Charlie Daniels Band, ALABAMA, Alison Krauss, Billy F Gibbons of ZZ Top, Blackberry Smoke, Bobby Bare, Chris Janson, Chris Young, Chuck Leavell, Eddie Montgomery of Montgomery Gentry, Jamey Johnson, Justin Moore, Lee Brice, Ricky Skaggs, Sara Evans, The Oak Ridge Boys, and Travis Tritt.

Lynyrd Skynyrd and Charlie Daniels have a long-lasting friendship of nearly four decades, and the band has a special history of performing at the Volunteer Jam. After the tragic 1977 plane crash involving the members of Lynyrd Skynyrd, the band returned to the stage for the first time with Daniels at Volunteer Jam ’79. With songs like “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Free Bird,” and “Gimme Three Steps,” and a career spanning more than 40 years, Lynyrd Skynyrd will bring their legendary songs back to Volunteer Jam.

Don’t miss this year’s Volunteer Jam XX: A Tribute To Charlie, hosted by Storme Warren. The all-star concert event is at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, at 7 PM CT.

Tickets are on sale now at, by phone at 800-745-3000, all Ticketmaster locations and the Bridgestone Arena box office. A portion of the proceeds from 2018’s Volunteer Jam will be donated to The Journey Home Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit co-founded by Daniels and manager David Corlew to help Veterans.

“Lynyrd Skynyrd is one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time. We’re honored that they are joining this extraordinary lineup of artists before they embark on the farewell tour,” says Keith Wortman, CEO of Blackbird Presents, and executive producer of Volunteer Jam XX: A Tribute To Charlie. Wortman is also executive producer of Nashville’s recent highly acclaimed All In For The Gambler: Kenny Rogers’ Farewell Concert Celebration and Sing Me Back Home: The Music of Merle Haggard.
