As anyone who's ever been to a Christmas Jam concert knows – Warren Haynes can throw a damn party.


For the 26th year in a row, Mr. Haynes will once again bring his beloved Xmas Jam to Asheville's US Cellular Center on December 13, 2014.


And we have a pair of tickets to give away...


Each year, the Christmas Jam sets the stage for surprise collaborations, rare appearances, and musical sets that keep on rockin into the wee hours of the morning. The tradition is sure to continue with this year’s line-up which includes:


Gov't Mule

Jason Isbell (from Drive-By Truckers)

Vince Gill 



Even American Idol winner and local darlin' Caleb Johnson is listed as a special guest. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. Check out the full line-up here at xmasjam.com


Exceited yet?


Winners will be selected on Wednesday December 10.


One of the most celebrated and longest-running live concerts in the U.S., the Christmas Jam once again benefits the Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity for the 16th year in a row. Haynes recently presented the organization with a record-breaking $500,000 in Christmas Jam proceeds from last year’s epic, sold-out Silver Anniversary event. That's a quarter of a million dollars!
  • Doors open at 6pm and the show begins at 7pm. For up-to-the minute updates, please visit xmasjam.com and follow @xmasjam on Twitter.


The Satellite Gallery will once again host the Christmas Jam Art Show with proceeds from art sales donated to the Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity. The gallery will be open starting at 3pm on Friday, December 12. Also, Cabinet will be performing a special acoustic afternoon set at the gallery at 1pm on Saturday the 13th. It's the perfect way to start what will no doubt be a very memorable day...


Merry Christmas Jam!
