Daniels fit the mentality perfectly.
Daniels’ fifth album, Fire on the Mountain, was his first to go Platinum. It included hits like “Long Haired Country Boy” and the old favorite, “Orange Blossom Special.”
His most popular single to date is 1979’s fiddle-laden “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.” The song has been covered and recorded by numerous bands, including, most recently, The Zac Brown Band.
At 75, Daniels still tours regularly and comments on the state of our country more than ever. Whether he’s wielding a fiddle or a pen, Charlie Daniels is a force to be reckoned with.
