Today we lost, a beloved country music icon.. Mr. Charlie Daniels..

Daniels was born Oct. 28, 1936, in Wilmington, N.C., and by the time he finished high school he was proficient in guitar, fiddle, banjo, and mandolin. Along with pursuing his own musical career with his band, he worked behind the scenes, playing for the likes of Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Ringo Starr, Hank Williams Jr., and the Marshall Tucker Band, and producing the Youngbloods’ 1969 album Elephant Mountain. Daniels scored his first top 10 hit with "Uneasy Rider" in 1973, followed by the minor hits "The South's Gonna Do It Again" and "Long Haired Country Boy.” However, it was “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” — a bluegrass/rap hybrid jam that told the dramatic tale of Beelzebub’s attempt to possess an intrepid young virtuoso’s soul through a winner-takes-all fiddle-playing contest — that became Daniels’s signature song.

Daniels is survived by his wife of 55 years, Hazel, and their son, Charlie Daniels Jr.

RIP Mr. Charlie Daniels..

The music world will miss you...

Yes, I tried to link it, but the only video (vs. still) version where Johnny Cash is the Devil has no audio.

Actually Travis Tritt was the devil in the version I seen & Johnny Cash was the Narrator...but my phone won't let me link stuff or I'd put it up.

That makes sense.  I didn't watch much of it (understandably).
