Brantley Gilbert will once again embark on a motorcycle ride for a good cause.
Singer and motorcycle enthusiast Brantley Gilbert will hit the road with the Wounded Warrior Project later this month.
The ride was organized in part to celebrate the re-release of his album, “Just As I Am,” but also celebrates the launch of a new program for the Wounded Warrior Project. The “Rolling Odyssey” program organizes therapeutic rides for veterans dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder other difficulties from readjustment after combat.
This will be the second consecutive year Gilbert will join the group to help raise money and awareness for the organization.
“Wounded Warrior Project is grateful for Brantley’s support of the WWP mission, to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. We are honored to work with motorcycle icon Harley-Davidson in a joint initiative to raise awareness about post-traumatic stress disorder and help improve the lives of this generation of wounded servicemen and women who are living with PTSD,” John Roberts, warrior relations executive vice president for WWP, told Country Standard Time. “Our warriors are excited to get out on the open road and ride their Harleys alongside Brantley in this inaugural Rolling Odyssey event.”
The ride begins in Houston on May 22 and will continue through Beaumont, Texas, Scott, LA. and Baton Rogue, LA. After the event, Gilbert will perform at LSU Tiger Stadium on May 23.
