"Every Download of J.R. Ward's New Single Benefits the Alzheimer's Walk"

Singer/songwriter J.R. Ward isn’t just talking the talk when it comes to helping find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease . . . he’s walking the walk.

The Tennessee native, who works for a home healthcare company in Florida, volunteers his time by playing music at assisted-living facilities.

After witnessing firsthand the impact Alzheimer’s has on both individuals and families, J.R. was inspired to pen and record a new single, “Ready to Go,” with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

“Glen Campbell’s fight against Alzheimer’s really brought to light on a national level how devastating the disease is,” says J.R. to Nash Country Daily. “But also witnessing firsthand how traumatic the disease is on families and patients inspired me—it moved me. I sat down and wrote the lyrics to ‘Ready to Go’ after watching an Alzheimer’s patient interact with his son. I hope the song has a far-reaching impact. That’s why I’m donating 100 percent of the proceeds of the downloads of the song to the Walk to End Alzheimer’s.”

“Ready to Go” is available for $0.99 on iTunes, Amazon Music and Google Play, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the Walk to End Alzheimer’s until Dec. 1.

J.R. Ward is an independent country music singer/songwriter originally from Chattanooga, TN who currently resides in Palm Coast, FL.  Drawing influences from artists such as Waylon Jennings, Gary Allan,  Jamey Johnson and Travis Tritt, J.R. writes and sings songs that show elements of another time with a fresh new sound all of his own.  J.R. has played over 200 shows in the past two years in TN, SC, GA, and Florida. These shows have ranged from opening for other artists, local bars, private parties, and Assisted Living homes. Playing for people in assisted living and nursing homes has been the greatest impact to J.R. in his songwriting and how he performs. "You really find out what's important when you play music for people who are at the end of their life. It reminds me to do what I love, and that's creating memories with music." 

J.R. is currently booking shows for the upcoming year to promote his debut EP "My Own Way." The EP is named after and for one of his greatest inspirations, Waylon Jennings, who once said, "There's always one more way to do things, and that's your way..."

"There's not a day that goes by that I am not writing about my experiences as well as other people in my life that have inspired me to share a story in a song.   I can't wait to share my music with the world."- J.R. Ward
