Charlie Daniels’ death has left a ‘gigantic hole’

One year after the death of country music legend Charlie Daniels, the musician’s prized organization, the Journey Home Project has ramped up its efforts to honor Daniels’ legacy by continuing its valiant work to assist veterans in their transition back into civilian life.

Daniels’ longtime best friend and manager of 47 years, David Corlew, told Fox News that in the wake of Daniels’ passing in July 2020 at the age of 83, the organization was renamed to include the Grammy-winning crooner’s namesake and the Charlie Daniels Journey Home Project had received more donations than ever which put the nonprofit on pace to distribute more to veterans than it ever had before.

Corlew said he was 23 years old when he went to work for Daniels in 1973. Now 71, the roadie and righthand has spent the entirety of his adult life with Daniels and the foundation.
