When you hear a classic Charlie Daniels Band performance like “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” you hear music that knows no clear genre. Is it a folk tale? A southern boogie? A country fiddle tune? An electric rock anthem? The answer is, “yes” to all of that and more. And the same goes for “In America,” “Uneasy Rider,” “The South's Gonna Do It,” “Long Haired Country Boy,” “Still in Saigon,” and “The Legend of Wooley Swamp.
Charlie Daniels’ resume includes recording sessions with artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Flatt & Scruggs, Pete Seeger, Mark O'Connor, Leonard Cohen and Ringo Starr. His songs have also been recorded by Elvis Presley and Tammy Wynette.
In April 1998, top stars and two former Presidents paid tribute to Daniels when he was named the recipient of the Pioneer Award at the Academy of Country Music's annual nationally televised ceremonies.
“In his time he's played everything from rock to jazz, folk to western swing, and honkytonk to award-winning gospel”, former President Jimmy Carter said. “In Charlie's own words, ‘Let there be harmony, let there be fun and 12 notes of music to make us all one.'.”
On Jan. 19, 2008, Daniels’ life-long dream became a reality when he was inducted as a full-fledged member into the Grand Ole Opry.
“I have been blessed with Gold, Platinum and Multiplatinum albums, I have appeared many times on network television, even in moving pictures. I have won multiple awards from The Country Music Association, The Academy of Country Music, The Gospel Music Association and even a Grammy. I have even played on the Grand Ole Opry many times. But I was always on the outside looking in. I was always a guest, never a member,” says Daniels.
