Charlie Daniels has announced that Montgomery Gentry and Travis Tritt will be performing at his 2015 Volunteer Jam.

The event is returning to Nashville next year to celebrate its 40th anniversary at Bridgestone Arena. In addition to Montgomery Gentry and Tritt, other acts include Billy Ray Cyrus, the Kentucky Headhunters, the Outlaws and Lee Roy Parnell, with more performers to be announced.

“We never had any idea how big it would become, broadcasting around the world and on Voice of America," Daniels says. "We thought it was a hometown thing. We never realized it would become an international event.

“I hope to see more Nashville Volunteer Jams in the future," he adds. "I’m very, very excited to continue the Jam tradition 40 years later. Ain't it good to be alive and be in Tennessee."

Profits from the evening will go to the Journey Home Project, a non-profit that Daniels co-founded to assist veterans, and the Predators Foundation.

Previous performers at the event include acts like James Brown, Billy Joel, Garth Brooks, Don Henley and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

“We are extremely excited that Charlie will be bringing the Volunteer Jam back to Nashville,” Journey Home Project board member Ed Hardy says. “Charlie is a big man with a big heart. His love and passion for our troops and veterans is unparalleled. We definitely could not do this without him.”

Tickets go on sale Jan. 30 at the Bridgestone Arena box office and Ticketmaster locations.
