Biography

Few individuals have symbolized the South in popular culture as directly and indelibly as Charlie Daniels.

EXPAND FULL BIO

Charlie Daniels is partly Western and partly Southern. His signature bullrider hat and belt buckle, his lifestyle on the Twin Pines Ranch (a boyhood dream come true), his love of horses, cowboy lore and the heroes of championship rodeo, Western movies, and Louis L’Amour novels, identify him as a Westerner. The son of a lumberjack and a Southerner by birth, his music – rock, country, bluegrass, blues, gospel – is quintessentially Southern. In fact, even his bent for all things Western is Southern, because his attire, his lifestyle and his interests are historically emblematic of Southern working class solidarity with the lone cowboy individualism of the American West. It hasn’t been so much a style of music, but more the values consistently reflected in several styles that has connected Charlie Daniels with millions of fans. Like so many great American success stories, The Charlie Daniels saga begins in rural obscurity. Born in 1936 in Wilmington, North Carolina, he was raised on a musical diet that included Pentecostal gospel, local bluegrass bands, and the rhythm & blues and country music emanating respectively from Nashville’s 50,000-watt megabroadcasters WLAC and WSM. In 1969, Daniels moved to middle Tennessee to find work as a session guitarist in Nashville.

Among his more notable sessions were the Bob Dylan albums of 1969-70 Nashville Skyline, New Morning, and Self Portrait. Daniels produced the Youngbloods albums of 1969-70 Elephant Mountain and Ride the Wind, toured Europe with Leonard Cohen and performed on records with artists as different as Al Kooper and Marty Robbins.

Daniels broke through as a record maker, himself, with 1973’s Honey In the Rock and its hit hippie song Uneasy Rider. His rebel anthems Long Haired Country Boy and The South’s Gonna Do It propelled his 1975 collection Fire On the Mountain to Double Platinum status.

Following stints with Capitol and Kama Sutra, Epic Records signed him to its rock roster in New York in 1976. The contract, reportedly worth $3 million, was the largest ever given to a Nashville act up to that time. In the summer of 1979 Daniels rewarded the company’s faith by delivering The Devil Went Down to Georgia, which became a Platinum single, topped both country and pop charts, won a Grammy Award, became
an international phenomenon, earned three Country Music Association trophies, became a cornerstone of the Urban Cowboy movie soundtrack and propelled Daniel’s Million Mile Reflections album to Triple Platinum sales levels.

The album’s title was a reference to a milestone in The Charlie Daniels Band’s legendary coast to coast tours. Including two drummers, twin guitars, and a flamenco dancer, the CDB often toured more than 250 days a year and by this time had logged more than a million miles on the road.By 1981, the Charlie Daniels Band had twice been voted the Academy of Country Music’s Touring Band of the Year.

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, The Legend of Wooley Swamp, and the rest of a catalog that spans 50 years of record making and represents more than 20 million in sales.

His 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 been recorded by Elvis Presley and Tammy Wynette. This touring legend has been documented by ABC Newsmagazine 20/20.

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.

On Saturday night, January 19th, 2008, Charlie’s life long dream became a reality. He was inducted as a full-fledged member into the Grand Ole Opry. It is an honor that I can’t begin to articulate, there is no way I can express what it means to me , says Daniels.
