American Patriot & Singer Charlie Daniels Dies at 83 ~ VIDEO

Nashville, Tenn. USA –  -(AmmoLand.com)- Country music and southern rock legend Charlie Daniels has passed. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member died this morning July 6th, 2020, at Summit Medical Center in Hermitage, Tennessee.

Doctors determined the cause of death was a hemorrhagic stroke. Charlie Daniels, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame who sang “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” recorded with Bob Dylan and was a vocal supporter of U.S. veterans and a bold advocate for conservative American values and gun ownership. He was 83.

Daniels' death was confirmed by his publicist, Don Murry Grubbs. He is survived by his wife, Hazel, and son, Charlie Daniels Jr.

NPR reports that: “Up until July 3, Daniels was posting thoughts on a section of his website entitled “Soap Box.”

“Late last month, he railed against the protesters amassing in the streets against police brutality, writing: “It will dawn on you that this is not a simple protest against the unjust killing of a black man, but a revolutionary street battle against America and everything we stand for and it IS funded and lead by socialist factions, and it's not just in the US but in many democratic nations around the world … Gun sales are through the roof and America is locked and loaded to protect their families and their neighborhoods.”

Funeral arrangements will be announced in the coming days.

We are on this earth for such a short time and many of us don’t touch others lives in such a way as Charlie Daniels did.
He spoke what was on his mind and entertained us with his stories thru his music in a humble manner.
RIP Charlie you will be missed.

I was sorry to learn of Charlie Daniels’ passing. He was a rare patriot and a good soul. Rest In Peace, Sir.

My favorite CD song was “The Legend Of Wooly Swamp”. Creepy and cool, all in one.

Sounds like one of the few people that don’t bother going with the flow once they become famous.
