R.I.P., Charlie. You Brought Joy To Countless People.....

This is the first time in recent memory that the passing of a musician has bummed me out. His music had that "something" to it that resonated with people across all backgrounds and walks of life.

Uneasy Rider

Still In Saigon

Long Haired Country Boy

In America

God Bless you, Charlie. I've got a feeling there's gonna be a lot of toe tappin' going on  in Heaven.....

  1. We, too, were bummed when we read about his passing. RIP Charlie Daniels.

    We still hear some of his tunes on Sirius Classic Country.

    1. I've heard him on several channels on Sirius. He had a giant fan base that crossed all genres of music.

  2. "It was October in Saint Louis town
    When we heard that the Freebird had fell to the ground
    We all said a prayer, before we went down to play...."

    CDB, "Reflections"

    And yeah, I held up red and blue lighters while the song played (I didn't have a white lighter ready-to-hand).

    1. His music had huge cross-over appeal, and his lyrics were always good.
