From his Dove Award®-winning gospel albums to his genre-defining Southern rock anthems and his CMA Award®-winning country hits, few artists have left a more indelible mark on America’s musical landscape than Charlie Daniels.

His own unique voice as an artist emerged as Daniels recorded his self-titled solo album in 1970. Two years later he formed the Charlie Daniels Band (CBD) and the group scored its first hit with the Top 10 “Uneasy Rider.” Since then, the CDB has populated the radio with memorable hits such as “Long Haired Country Boy,” “The South’s Gonna Do It Again,” “In America,” “The Legend of Wooley Swamp” and of course his signature song, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” which won a Grammy® for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group in 1979 as well as Single of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards.

Daniels exudes joy whenever he steps on stage.

“I love what I do,” says Daniels of his 50-plus years in the music business. “I look forward to entertaining people. When show time gets here, I’m ready to go, ready to go play for them. It’s a labor of love. I just thank God I make a living at what I enjoy doing.”

Over the course of his career, Daniels has received numerous accolades, including induction into the Grand Ole Opry, Musicians Hall of Fame and in 2016, the Country Music Hall of Fame. He’s received the Pioneer Award by the Academy of Country Music and was honored as a BMI Icon in recognition of his songwriting. In 2009, Daniels received a star on the Music City Walk of Fame in Nashville, Tenn.
