The word “legend” gets tossed around so easily these days, but not in this case… he was #BeyondLegendary. This is one of my absolute favorites… “The Legend of Wooly Swamp” #CharlieDaniels pic.twitter.com/kSsqVwmsFf

Charlie Daniels was the nicest country artist I’ve ever had the chance to spend moments around. His music and talent speaks for itself, but boys and girls it’s the legacy you leave behind and your character. It doesn’t get better than Charlie Daniels. Rest In Peace Charlie.
