R.I.P Charlie Daniels

Country music legend Charlie Daniels dies at 83

Country Music legend Charlie Daniels, best known for his monster 1979 hit “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” died Monday of a hemorrhagic stroke. He was 83.

According to a press release from his representatives, the acclaimed Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member died at Summit Medical Center in Hermitage, Tenn., where doctors determined his cause of death.

Daniels accumulated a slew of accolades and awards during his long career in music, including his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Musicians Hall of Fame and becoming a member of the Grand Ole Opry. He also won a Dove Award for gospel albums and a coveted Grammy Award for best country vocal performance by a duo or group.

While The Charlie Daniels Band had numerous hits and remained a staple in Country music radio, his most enduring hit was a tale of a young man named Johnny who challenged the devil to a fiddle-playing contest and came away with a violin made of gold.

“Few artists have left a more indelible mark on America's musical landscape than Charlie Daniels. An outspoken patriot, beloved mentor, and a true road warrior, Daniels parlayed his passion for music into a multi-platinum career and a platform to support the military, underprivileged children, and others in need,” a statement from Daniels’ representatives reads.

In addition to his music, Daniels was a major advocate for several causes that were close to his heart including supporting the U.S. military with The Journey Home Project, which he founded in 2014 with his manager, David Corlew, to help veterans.

Daniels also worked closely with the Jason Foundation, a Nashville-based nonprofit started by a father who lost his teen son to suicide. Daniels previously said that after looking at the data, he knew he could help veterans and needed to educate people on just how close to tragedy we might be at any given moment.

I was seven years old when "The Devill Went Down to Georgia" came out.

Let me tell you - it was a REALLY BIG DEAL whenever it came on the radio because you see there were TWO versions. Both versions were IDENTICAL except there is a line toward the end that is different in each version. The FIRST version says "I told you once you son of a gun" and the second version says "I told you once you son of a bitch" then of course both go "I'm the best there's ever been."

Now the 1st version was cool, no doubt, BUT the second version? Jesus Christ You would be sitting there hoping and pryaing for three or four minutes that he'd say "son of a bitch" on the radio, and when he did you'd be screaming triumphantly inside "Yes! Yes! YES!!!! He said it!!!" Other times you'd be bummed out and disappointed when he said "Son of a gun." I mean it really was a big let down, as these things go anyway at age 7. RIP Charlie.

I felt every bit of that. I'm only slightly older than you. I think I was in 6th grade, so around age 11, when it came out.

I am on topic. We are talking about Charlie Daniels. If there's a big diatribe in the OP about his life and the "mark" he left on the world, and all of his causes, then him being a good ol' boy is just as valid. That was part of his life. [Snip - luv4u]

I read his autobiography about a year ago. It was pretty good. My favorite song by CDB is Uneasy Rider.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras
