Memorial Day weekend is here. While many see it as the start of grilling season, opening of pools or the weekend of the Indianapolis 500, the original meaning of Memorial Day was to honor fallen soldiers. While Memorial Day has morphed into a day for remembering other loved ones who have passed, the holiday remains a very patriotic one.
Few musicians symbolize patriotism more than Charlie Daniels. AXS TV channel 185 celebrates Charlie Daniels this Memorial Day weekend, as the icon sits down with Dan Rather on The Big Interview and plays a special concert for first responders on Saturday, May 24th at 9pm.
After the interview, enjoy "Volunteer Jam featuring Charlie Daniels" LIVE at 10pm. Don't miss it.
That not enough for you? How about a full Memorial Day concert marathon from your favorite Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees? AXS TV will host the marathon on Monday, May 26th. The day-long event features over 15 hours of iconic music from nine of the Hall of Fame's most influential inductees including Bruce Springsteen, KISS, Led Zeppelin and more.
