LOS
ANGELES – May 15, 2014 – Southern style comes to AXS TV this Memorial
Day weekend, as the home of live music events presents a special evening
with country icon Charlie Daniels. The night begins with an all-new
episode of THE BIG INTERVIEW, hosted by legendary newsman Dan Rather, at
9pE, discussing Daniels’ legendary life and career. Then, immediately
after, tune in at 10pE for the annual “Volunteer Jam Featuring The
Charlie Daniels Band,” a benefit concert for America’s soldiers and
first- responders.

During THE BIG INTERVIEW Daniels sits down with Rather for an
intimate and in-depth interview at Daniels’ recording studio in Mt.
Juliet, Tennessee. In the candid discussion, Daniels opens up about his
youth in the Civil Rights Era south; breaking into the competitive
Nashville scene; his signature hit, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”;
life on the road; and the inspiration behind his latest album Off The
Grid – Doin’ It Dylan, a tribute piece that finds the Charlie Daniels
Band putting a southern twist on a collection of Bob Dylan’s most
classic songs. The episode also includes a tour of Daniels’ tour bus,
and a three-song set at the Grand Ole Opry. The episode will air again
that night at 12:30aE.

Following THE BIG INTERVIEW, it’s a very special presentation of
“Volunteer Jam Featuring The Charlie Daniels Band,” as the southern rock
hero gives back to America’s heroes with this one-of-a-kind concert.
Held at the Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre in Greenwood Village, CO, the
live broadcast will feature performances from acclaimed country acts
Blackhawk and The Outlaws, before The Charlie Daniels Band takes the
stage for what is sure to be a raucous performance of career-spanning
favorites. Since 1974, the Volunteer Jam has strived to benefit the
hardworking service men and women of America—as a token of appreciation,
complimentary tickets have been made available to members of the armed
forces, Red Cross, and first-responders.

“Charlie Daniels is a true class act, with a heart as big as his
legacy,” said Mark Cuban, AXS TV founder. “AXS TV is proud to be part of
the live Volunteer Jam, paying tribute to America’s true heroes on
Memorial Day weekend. With over 60 years in the music business,
Charlie’s got some incredible stories to tell, and I’m excited to see
what Dan Rather is able to do with such rich subject matter.”
