He plays a mean fiddle, but Charlie Daniels himself is anything but mean. In fact, the “Devil Went Down to Georgia” singer and master fiddler is more like an angel in disguise.
Daniels’ Volunteer Jam is a massive night of music that benefits charities.
And this year, he had a lot to donate when the recent 40th anniversary of the event brought in a staggering $300,000 for the Journey Home Project, which supports U.S. veterans, troops and their families.
It was the first time Daniels had hosted his Volunteer Jam in Nashville in almost 20 years.
“It was good to see an old Tennessee tradition come back to life — all for this great cause,” Daniels says.
Indeed, it is a great cause. And Daniels is one of Nashville’s genuine treasures.
