The second annual Charlie Daniels Patriot Award Dinner held on Tuesday, Sept. 10 at The Palm Restaurant in Nashville, where more than $200,000 was raised for the Country Music Hall of Fame’s veterans non-profit The Journey Home Project (TJHP).

The sold-out event featured performances by Charlie Daniels (“Let ’em Win Or Bring ’em Home”) and Darryl Worley (“Have You Forgotten”) as well as remarks from decorated military veterans Mark “Oz” Geist (Benghazi survivor/co-author of 13 Hours/US Marine Corps, retired), Eddie Gallagher (US Navy SEAL), Michael Flynn (former National Security Advisor/US Army Lieutenant General, retired) and former New York City Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik. The evening was hosted by SiriusXM’s Storme Warren and former Navy SEAL David Rutherford.

“The Journey Home Project dinner event at The Palm just gets better and better every year,” says Daniels. “We are so very grateful to the good people of Middle Tennessee for supporting us in our efforts to help our veterans.”

Charlie Daniels Patriot Awards were presented to Nashville businessman Donnie Mingus and music industry international talent buyer/promoter Judy Seale. Chris Young,last year’s Patriot Award recipient, made a surprise appearance to present a third award to the Shepherd’s Men, an organization dedicated to raising funds and awareness for the SHARE Military Initiative at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta.
