To the world at large, no musician epitomizes country music more than Charlie Daniels. His name is shorthand for epic fiddle playing. His albums are country music classics. Not only is “Devil Went Down to Georgia” one of the most widely recognized country music songs in the world, it is the most celebrated face-off between an American musician and infernal powers since Robert Johnson made his alleged trip to the crossroads.
Still going strong, Daniels will soon release an album celebrating a topic with which he has become inseparably associated — patriotism.
