John and Bruce

About Us

Songwriting legends John Jarrard and Bruce Burch dedicated themselves to spreading music and love to the world – both through their work and through their outlook on life. Cumulatively, John and Bruce wrote over 25 hit country songs recorded by some of country music’s biggest names – Alabama, George Strait, Reba McEntire, George Jones, Loretta Lynn and more. The Jarrard Burch Foundation upholds their legacy by organizing 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.

Spreading the Love

Proceeds from our efforts and events go to the John Jarrard Fund, administered by the North Georgia Community Foundation, to benefit deserving causes in our community. Beneficiaries include:
