passes away at 83!
Charlie Daniels a famous American singer/songwriter and an outspoken strong supporter of the National Rifle Association (NRA) recently passed away at age 83. Born in North Carolina Charlie was exposed to gospel, bluegrass and country music and upon finishing high school he was already a skilled player on the guitar, banjo¸ fiddle and mandolin and formed his own band.
In 1970, Charlie recorded his first solo album and his first hit song was “Uneasy Rider” and then in 1973 recorded his most memorable song “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” which earned him a Grammy Award for Best Country Vocal Performance.
Charlie was a vocal supporter of the 2nd Amendment and the NRA, he headlined NRA country concerts and talked about his passion for firearms. Charlie stated, “I'd fight to my last breath to defend my home and my family and by the looks of the lines at the gun stores lately, it looks like an awful lot of other people feel the same way, that they want to defend themselves, which is the constitutional right we're guaranteed in the Second Amendment.”
NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre had this to say, “The world knew Charlie Daniels as a wizard with a fiery fiddle, a legendary musician, a true American icon. But to his NRA family, Charlie was all that and a lot more. We knew and loved Charlie as an outspoken patriot whose passion for freedom was unparalleled. Charlie didn't just preach about values, he lived them every day. A proud NRA Life Member and lifelong Second Amendment supporter who spoke out for freedom every chance he got. Our country grieves for a true patriot. Our NRA family mourns the loss of a brother, rest in peace Charlie.”
Jack Danchak is the President of the Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs of Sullivan County.
