Hard Rock Event Center in Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa will host the US 103.5 Country Jam, benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, on Wednesday, December 7, at 8 p.m.

Tickets priced at $103.50 will go on sale online at or via Ticketmaster beginning Friday, September 30, at 10 a.m.

A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Multi-platinum RCA Records global entertainer Chris Young and American rapper/singer Jelly Roll will be among the performers with more to be announced soon.

Young has accumulated an impressive list of accomplishments, including membership in the iconic Grand Ole Opry, over five billion on-demand streams, 13 million singles sold, 13 career No. 1 singles, 24 R.I.A.A. Gold/Platinum/Multi-Platinum certified projects, numerous ACM, AMA, CMA and Grammy nominations, as well as wins for Performance of the Year and Collaborative Video of the Year at the CMT Music Awards. These accomplishments and more landed him in the Top 20 of Billboard’s top country artists of the decade. 

Named “one of his era’s finest traditionalists” by the Associated Press, Young is an international ambassador for country music, performing to capacity crowds around the world. With a hit-packed set that highlights his 12 chart-toppers – including back-to-back No. 1s “Losing Sleep,” “Sober Saturday Night,” “Think Of You,” and “I’m Comin’ Over” – the GRAMMY® and ACM nominated vocalist’s most recent headlining tour played to over 400,000 fans in three countries.

Genre-bending singer/songwriter/rapper Jelly Roll has quietly been building a remarkable career and creative empire, under the radar – under the nose of Nashville’s Music Row and the entire music industry – and doing it on his own terms. Since his days selling mix tapes out of his car, he has constantly been creating and releasing new music and videos, touring relentlessly, and consistently topping various iTunes charts with his deeply personal lyrics and music that blends old-school rap, classic rock, country, and soul that is therapeutic, raw and tackles the heaviness in life.

In 2020, he released “Save Me,” which attracted more than 65 million views on YouTube and Gold certification from the RIAA. The song also helped him find a new voice musically and explore a more melodic songwriting style that brought in more rock and country influence to his style.
