Country music icon, Charlie Daniels, has passed away at 83 years young from a stroke. Charlie Daniels was a member of the Charlie Daniels Band (obviously) as well as a member of the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Since I am from Georgia, I will tell you that Charlie Daniels was basically taught in school…not really, but everyone knew who he was. He was the man that made fiddle playing pretty damn cool with the song “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”. If country music can rock out, this is the song that does it.
I believe he had at least 32 studio albums and numerous compilations. He was one of the cool guys in country and has influenced so many artists over the years. He left us with a ton of music and he will be remembered for many more years to come. Rest in Peace Charlie!! Play that music up in Heaven since the Devil never got your soul!!
