Country Music Stars Mourn The Passing Of American Patriot Charlie Daniels

Country music legend and activist for America Charlie Daniels died of stroke on Monday. The fiddle player and singer best known for “the devil went down to Georgia” was 83.

Charlie Daniels topped the Country music charts in 1979 with devil went down to Georgia and would continue to tour the country until his passing. His fiddle skills were unparalleled and his music will live on forever.

Everyone I know will be getting a copy of his greatest hits album as a gift this year. My favorites from the album include “In America” and “Simple Man”.

Charlie Daniels also used his platform to promote God and America. The outspoken singer was known to stand up for veterans and millions of people on Social Media will miss his regular “Benghazi ain’t going away” or “Remember 9-11” posts.

Current country music stars expressed their grief and loss over Charlie’s passing including Jason Aldean who called him “one of the nicest/kindest people I have ever met”

Brad Paisley shared some words he wrote for Charlie’s biography:

Luke Bryan really nailed it with his description of Daniels as “a true patriot, Christian, and country music icon.

Tim McGraw called him “one of the most genuine, kind and thoughtful folks I’ve ever run across.”

Luke Combs ordered the country music flag flown at half mast
