The Journey Home Project is a not-for profit organization that assists other not-for-profits in securing funds to help causes that benefit veterans of the United States Armed Forces. The Journey Home Project was founded in 2014 by country music legend Charlie Daniels and board members: David Corlew, Ed Hardy and Joe & Mercedez Longever. Conscious of the need to assist our nation’s veterans, they have set out to partner with organizations that do the most good, with the least overhead. Working in tandem with these organizations, The Journey Home Project is making a difference in the lives of American patriots.
As a result of funds raised through Daniels' 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam at the Bridgestone Arena last year, The Journey Home Project has been able to donate funds to help with the completion of the state-of-the-art Veterans and Military Families Center on campus at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), among various other fundraising events for veterans. This year’s Volunteer Jam on November 30 will bring Kid Rock, Chris Stapleton, Larry the Cable Guy, Travis Tritt and more to the Bridgestone Arena stage to celebrate Charlie Daniels’ 80th Birthday. Tickets to this event can be purchased here.
