Well. It's official. No one is untouchable. Despite new music and planned upcoming Volunteer Jam, Charlie Daniels has suffered a stroke and passed away. This entry could be something we'd work on steadily for a full 24 hours and it wouldn't even come close to making a dent in what made Charlie Daniels, Charlie Daniels. Why bother? It would not cover a cent's worth of what everyone who admires him has to say. But this place is designed to be a site for those who love Country Music. So, the original long-haired country boy Mr. Charlie won't be left alone (and would probably find me and give me a good old-fashioned fiddle-lashing if I didn't mention him). So here's some thoughts below (including a last few from the very Christian "devil" of a man himself) and if you have any sweet memories to share please do comment. We love you Charlie Daniels. Thank you.
