Songwriting legends John Jarrard and Bruce Burch cast a lasting legacy – both through their work and their outlooks on life. The lifelong friends produced more than 25 hits between them, recorded by some of country music’s biggest names – including Alabama, George Strait, Reba McEntire, George Jones, and Loretta Lynn. Just as important to them was the support they provided to nonprofits and charitable ventures. The Jarrard Burch Foundation exists to foster their amazing contributions to art and humanity. We organize live concerts to support songwriters and benefit charities in north Georgia that were closest to both John’s and Bruce’s hearts.
Founded in 2001 in memory of Jarrard, a member of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, our non-profit organization keeps the love of song and songwriting at the forefront of our communities. And by combining the talents of many, the Jarrard Burch Foundation benefits so many more.
