Happy New Year Humans!
Already, 2018 is shaping up to be a super exciting year for myself and many of my close musician friends and heroes. In the coming weeks I will be announcing a new recording project that is very near and dear to my
heart. I am deeply inspired to make this music and can't wait to take you
> all on the journey with me.
Elsewhere in AWoH news, the road is calling! My fantastic band and I
will be announcing a killer summer tour that you will not want to miss. I
promise the minute all the details are confirmed I will be spreading the
news to all of you. We start our touring year tomorrow in Louisiana and we are stoked to get going again.
We’ll see you all out there!
Ring in the new!
Love and respect,
Happy New Year Humans!

This year’s show will include a special appearance by Heart frontwoman Ann Wilson, who’ll join Haynes’ band Gov’t Mule for a portion of their set.
This will mark the first time Wilson will perform at a Christmas Jam. In August, she teamed up with Gov’t Mule for a special performance at the Lockn’ Festival in Arrington, Virginia.
The lineup for the 2017 Christmas Jam also features Les Bros., which includes founding Allman Brothers Band drummer Jaimoe and other Allmans alumni; Phish‘s Trey Anastasio and his side group Classic TAB; The Avett Brothers; Blackberry Smoke; and more.
The concert, which is expected to run for over seven hours, will benefit the event’s longtime beneficiary: the Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity charity. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Thursday October 26, while pre-sale tickets and VIP packages will be available starting this Thursday, October 19.
In conjunction with the main Christmas Jam show, a number of related events will be held in Asheville around the date of the benefit concert. “Xmas Jam by Day” gigs will take place at the Asheville Music Hall and that venue’s affiliated club, The One Stop, while an art and photography show will be hosted by a local gallery.
In addition, the annual “Before the Jam, Lend a Hand” event will bring fans, artists and staff members together to help build houses funded by money raised by the Christmas Jam.
