NASHVILLE – For the fourth straight year, the Journey Home Project, founded by Country Music Hall of Fame member Charlie Daniels, of Mt. Juliet, and his long-time manager David Corlew, will hold its annual charity dinner event Sept. 19 from 6-9 p.m. at the Palm Restaurant at 140 Fifth Ave, S. in Nashville. 

Tickets may be purchased through Paige Dixon at 615-742-3193 or pdixon@thepalm.com. Proceeds will benefit the Journey Home Project.

The evening will feature a collection of guest speakers and performers. This year’s event will bring together an array of guest speakers and performers, which will include featured speakers American combat veteran, Kyle E. Lamb, along with former New York City police Commissioner Bernard B. Kerik and performances by Daniels, Craig Morgan and Scooter Brown. Marisa Wayne, Mark “Oz” Geist, John “Tig” Tiegen will be special guests, and Storme Warren and David Rutherford will co-host the event.

“Every year this event grows, which allows us to continue to broaden the reach The Journey Home Project has, in supporting the many needs that returning veterans are faced with,” said Corlew. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for us to share our appreciation for the men and women who have, and do serve our great country.”

Individual tickets are $250 per person, and a standard guest table for eight is available for $3,000. 

The Journey Home Project is a nonprofit organization that raises contributions, takes donations and provides assistance to other nonprofit organizations that benefit veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces. The Journey Home Project was founded in 2014 by Daniels and board members Corlew, Ed Hardy and Joe and 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 makes a difference in the lives of American patriots.

As a result of funds raised through Daniels’40th anniversary Volunteer Jam in 2015 and 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam in 2016 at the Bridgestone Arena and other entertainment-related events, the Journey Home Project was 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, among various other fundraising events for veterans.
