From his Dove Award winning gospel albums to his genre-defining Southern rock
anthems and his CMA Award-winning country hits, few artists have left a more
indelible mark on America’s musical landscape than Charlie Daniels. An outspoken
patriot, beloved mentor to young artists and still a road warrior at age 80, Charlie
has parlayed his passion for music into a multi-platinum career and a platform to
support the military, underprivileged children and others in need.
Raised among the longleaf pines of North Carolina, Charlie began his career playing
bluegrass music with the Misty Mountain Boys. After moving to Nashville in 1967,
he began making a name for himself as a songwriter, session musician and producer.
Elvis Presley recorded a tune Charlie co-wrote titled “It Hurts Me,” which was
released on the flip side of “Kissin’ Cousins.” He played on such landmark albums as
Bob Dylan’s Nashville Skyline and tried his hand at producing on the Youngbloods’
Elephant Mountain and Ride the Wind.
His own unique voice as an artist emerged as Charlie recorded his self-titled solo
album in 1970 for Capitol Records. Two years later he formed the Charlie Daniels
Band and the group scored its first hit with the top ten “Uneasy Rider.” Since then
the CDB has populated radio with such memorable hits as “Long Haired Country
Boy,” “The South’s Gonna Do It Again,” “In America,” “The Legend of Wooley Swamp”
and of course, his signature song, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” which won a
Grammy for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group in 1979 as well as
single of the year at the Country Music Association Awards.
The CDB performed 100+ concert dates in 2016 including performances on the
Grand Ole Opry and will begin touring in March for a full performance schedule in
“I love what I do,” says Charlie of his 50-plus years in the music business. “I look
forward to entertaining people. When show time gets here, I’m ready to go, ready to
go play for them. It’s a labor of love. I just thank God I make a living at what I enjoy
