The 2016 Volunteer Jam was already on track to be epic.

With country music artists such as Kid Rock, Chris Stapleton and Travis Tritt already signed on to perform and pay tribute to the legendary Charlie Daniels during the charity concert that helps raise money for his beloved Journey Home Project, the buzz surrounding the star-studded concert was already in full swing.

Yet, that buzz just got a whole lot louder.

In addition to a performer list that keeps getting stronger by the day, this year’s Volunteer Jam will also serve as a celebration of Charlie’s 80th birthday on Oct. 28. “This year, I will celebrate two milestones, my 80th birthday and the Volunteer Jam,” Charlie said in a release announcing the star-studded event. “It’s pretty amazing that we’re both alive and kicking and still going strong. Ain’t it good to be alive and be in Tennessee!”
