Underneath his signature beard and cowboy hat lies a man who has made and performed country and Southern rock music since the 50s. In his long career, Charlie Daniels released more than 30 studio albums, won a Grammy for Best Vocal Performance, and was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry. But he's probably best known for a fiddle duel with the devil in his famed 1979 ballad, "The Devil Went Down To Georgia".

In April 1998, top stars and two former U.S. presidents paid tribute to Daniels when he received the Pioneer Award at the ACM's annual nationally-televised ceremonies. In January 2008, Daniels was inducted as a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

Danielsí annual Volunteer Jam concerts have featured a variety of current stars and heritage artists including Roy Acuff, Bill Monroe, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, James Brown, Willie Nelson, the Allman Brothers, Billy Joel, the Marshall Tucker Band, Little Richard, B. B. King, and Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Charlie Daniels' music spans 50 years of recording and represents more than $20 million in sales.


Inducted to the Music City Walk of Fame on November 8, 2009.
