Charlie Daniels "Volunteer Jam" Set for August 12th at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena to Support The Journey Home Project
The Journey Home Project Inaugural Event at The Palm Sells Out
Daniels announces the legendary “Volunteer Jam,” which began in 1974 at
War Memorial Auditorium when Daniels and his friends recorded a live
version of “Fire On The Mountain,” will take place at the Bridgestone
Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, on August 12, 2015, to raise awareness
and funds for The Journey Home Project. Tickets for Charlie’s Volunteer
Jam will be available online at charliedaniels.com, thejourneyhomeproject.org, or through Ticketmaster starting Spring 2015.
“We are extremely excited that Charlie will be bringing the Volunteer
Jam back to Nashville. Everyone can only guess who his surprise guests
are going to be,” says The Journey Home Project board member Ed Hardy.
“Charlie is a big man with a big heart. His love and passion for our
troops and veterans is unparalleled. We definitely could not do this
The announcement comes on the heels of the inaugural Journey Home
Project fundraising event, which took place at The Palm on Tuesday,
September 9, to a sold out audience. Guests were treated to music by
Rodney Atkins, Mandy Barnett, Ryan Weaver and Daniels, but the big
surprise of the night was the interaction with troops in Afghanistan
through a special uplink coordinated by David Corlew and the Special
“It was a very special moment, there was not a dry eye in the room”
says The Journey Home Project board member David Corlew. “I have been
very fortunate traveling to Afghanistan where I visited our troops and
have built a personal relationship with many of them. Being able to
connect our supporters with those that we are raising money for was
something nobody expected, and that was special.”
The Charlie Daniels Scholarship for Heroes Fund, which is part of the
Yellow Ribbon Education Program at Lipscomb University, was created by
Daniels and Corlew to raise money to allow our military heroes to
receive an excellent education. Those efforts will continue through The
Journey Home Project, which was established to cultivate and bring all
fundraising efforts under one umbrella.
The Journey Home Project mission is to help connect people who might
not come into contact with soldiers on a daily basis, but who care. The
organization will also assist other not-for-profits in securing funds to
help causes that benefit Veterans of the United States Armed Forces.
