On Tuesday, Sept. 18 at the Charlie Daniels Patriot Award Dinner held at The Palm Restaurant in downtown Nashville, country singer Chris Young received a special honor and one that’s very near and dear to his heart. During the sold-out event benefiting The Journey Home Project (TJHP), Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie Daniels presented Young with the first-ever Charlie Daniels Patriot Award.

The criteria for the Charlie Daniels Patriot Award is based on the mission of TJHP: to support veterans in their return, rehabilitation and reintegration back into civilian life. The award honors a person, persons or group that exemplifies the efforts and dedication to fulfill its purpose of care, support and encouragement to the men.

Breakout country artist Tegan Marie gave Warner Music Nashville’s Pickin’ On The Patio season an upbeat finale recently. From a fruit punch drink aptly called “Boys’ Tears” (a play off of her song “I Know How To Make A Boy Cry”) to bubbles festively decorating the air, the 14-year-old rising star treated the all-ages crowd to her lighthearted tune “Keep It Lit” and more alongside her high-energy band.
