Eddie Vedder, Jelly Roll, Post Malone All Slated for Reportin’ for Duty Benefit

Second annual concert, located near Nashville, is held in the memory of late actor Leslie Jordan

The second annual Reportin’ for Duty benefit concert will feature a diverse roster of musicians that includes Post Malone, Eddie Vedder, Jelly Roll, the War and Treaty, Jake Wesley Rogers, and Dan Spencer. The concert will take place at the “world’s longest bar,” the 250-person–capacity Humble Baron at the Nearest Green Whiskey Distillery in Shelbyville, Tennessee, on Feb. 17. Tickets are available now.

The event will raise funds for EB Research Partnership (EBRP), which Vedder and his wife Jill Vedder co-founded to fund research to treat and cure Epidermolysis Bullosa, a painful skin disease. Money for this year’s installment will help aid children battling EB. The benefit’s organizers launched the event in memory of the late actor Leslie Jordan who used the phrase “reportin’ for duty” to describe his commitment to service.

The inaugural Reportin’ for Duty benefit featured Vedder performing alongside Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne, Lukas Nelson, and Jelly Roll, among others, at the Grand Ole Opry.

A year before his death, Jordan recorded an album of gospel songs, Company’s Comin’, with a number of notable guests, including Vedder, the Brothers Osborne’s T.J. Osborne, Brandi Carlile, Tanya Tucker, and Chris and Morgane Stapleton, among others. “To be able to come back to these hymns with no axe to grind, I’ve taken care of all that,” he told Rolling Stone in 2021. “I’m 22 years clean and sober, so you do a lot of work in A.A. about anger and resentment and all of that. You just come to realize, everybody back then was doing the best they could with the light they had to see with.” Jordan died in a car accident in 2022.
