Charlie Daniels has never fit into any certain label, purposely creating a sound and blend of music all his own….
The new album, “Night Hawk”, stays true to that tradition with Daniels putting a unique spin on cowboy songs both well known and uncovered from through the years. The album will be available on August 26th at www.CharlieDaniels.com.
Most of our concepts about cowboys, and all things western, are mostly derived from movies and TV. Well, the truth of the matter is, the real cowboys are not glow in the dark characters who go around fighting rustlers and cleaning out saloons with their fists. The actual working cowboy is a hard working, different breed who spend endless hours in the saddle and as Louis L’Amour said, they ‘ride for the brand.’ “Night Hawk” is a tribute to the working cowboy and his way of life,” said Charlie Daniels.

“Night Hawk” is a reflection of stories from the trail told by cowboys around the campfire through the years. Many of the songs, introduced in an acoustic style, are obscure songs with deep meaningful lyrics, while some are classics presented in a new way.
The album comes in the midst of one of the most important years ofCharlie Daniels’ career. In early 2016 it was announced that he would become the newest inductee to the Country Music Hall of Fame, along with Randy Travis and Fred Foster. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum curtailed that with the announcement of an exhibit in his honor, called “Million Mile Reflections”, set to open September 23rd.
Adding to the fun, Kid Rock, Chris Stapleton, Travis Tritt, Larry the Cable Guy and more will join Charlie in celebration at his 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam on November 30th at Bridgestone Arena. Tickets for the much anticipated event can be purchased HERE.
