Inmates At Hardeman Start Bands

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - Michael Donahue wants to be put out of business, and he's trying everything in his power to make that happen.

Donahue is the warden at Corrections Corporation of America's Hardeman County Correctional Center. He wants to make sure every inmate who is released stays out of prison.

Hardeman County Correctional Center has several programs that inmates can be involved with that are designed to give them something to do, something to strive for and something to pursue when they're released. The center has educational and trade programs. But one of the most unusual programs is a musical one.

The correctional center is home to three different musical groups, all of which are focused on religious songs and writings. Inmates practice together, write their own music and put on performances for the facility.
