NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Country Music Hall of Fame member, Charlie Daniels is showcasing his love of the Red, White, and Blue once again in his latest recording that will be available for sale digitally on July 4th via iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon. In addition, a new video produced by d corlew films and featured on CMT.com has been released to celebrate the song.
Daniels version of the Johnny Cash standard “Ragged Old Flag,” also includes vocals by Mark “Oz” Geist, Benghazi Warrior/Survivor and co-author of the autobiography “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi.”
“The ‘Ragged Old Flag’ project was very personal to me,” said David Corlew, “Ragged Old Flag” Video Producer and Charlie Daniels Manager. “When you have the opportunity to create images for a piece that was written by Johnny Cash, performed by Charlie Daniels- and its content consists of what is closest to my heart: our warriors- present and past, our country, and our flag- it really can’t get any better.”
Daniels founded his charity The Journey Home Project in 2014, managed by Board Members David Corlew, with Joe and Mercedez Longever. The Journey Home Project sees its mission as connecting donors to veterans’ organizations that do the most good. They identify the centers, organizations and programs that can best serve our soldiers and families in their journey to reintegrate back to civilian life, on life’s terms.
