Charlie Daniels Adds New Partnership for 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam
The Journey Home Project was established in 2014 by Daniels, his long-time manager, David Corlew, as well as Ed Hardy, Mercedez Longever and Joe Longever, to seek out support for those organizations that have proven to be the most valid and effective when it comes to meeting veterans’ needs. By teaming up with VBHCS, a non-profit dedicated to providing a spectrum of services to meet the mental health needs for Tennesseans, the duo is seeking donors throughout Middle Tennessee to assist veterans in need via public service announcements.
“Between Charlie and me, we have traveled abroad to so many military bases to show support for our troops and it means so much to us personally,” Corlew explains. “Every time we do events or put fundraisers together, people want to know where the money is going and how we can help their situation. Through The Journey Home Project, we are able to make decisions on where the money will go and how it can best help those in need."
To support the cause, Daniels will be holding his 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam on Aug. 12, with all proceeds benefitting the Journey Home Project and the Predators Foundation. This year, Ted Nugent, Trace Adkins, Alabama, Montgomery Gentry, Tracy Lawrence, Lee Greenwood will all be taking the Bridgestone Arena stage to help their old friend Charlie out.
“These artists and friends of mine have all come together out of the goodness of their hearts to put on a night of entertainment all for the purpose of honoring our nation’s veterans,” says Daniels.
