Country music rabble-rouser and fiddler Charlie Daniels, who everyone knows of his classic “Devil Went Down to Georgia,” has died at age 83.
A report from his publicist said the Country Music Hall of Famer died Monday at a hospital in Hermitage, Tennessee after doctors said he had a stroke.
He had experienced what was described as a mild stroke in January 2010 and had a heart pacemaker implanted in 2013 but proceeded to perform.
Daniels, a singer, guitarist, and fiddler, started as a session musician, even playing on Bob Dylan’s “Nashville Skyline” sessions. Beginning in the early 1970s, his five-piece band toured endlessly, sometimes doing 250 shows a year.
Luckily I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Daniels and cover his last and final tour here in Austin at the HEB Center along with my fellow NFTP photojournalist Michael Mullenix.
