Charlie Daniels' Volunteer Jam, a star-studded country and rock concert which dates back to 1974, returns in 2021 as a tribute to the event's late founder.

The Feb. 22, 2021 event at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena has also expanded its all-star lineup, with Alabama, Ricky Skaggs, CeCe Winans, Old Crow Medicine Show and Junior Brown added to an already stacked bill of country singers and Southern rock icons.

Daniels died on July 6 after suffering a hemmorhagic stroke. The Country Music Hall of Fame inductee and Grand Ole Opry member was 83 years old.

"I am forever grateful for all of the love and support Charlie Jr. and I have received since Charlie's passing," Daniels' widow, Hazel Daniels, said in a statement (as quoted by the Tennessean). "Charlie would be excited and extremely proud that his Volunteer Jam would continue."
