Charlie Daniels got his start on pop radio in 1973 with Uneasy Rider, a tongue-in-cheek story of a long-haired country boy on a cross country trip who ran into some trouble in a Mississippi tavern. It was delivered in a talking blues style, and served as a stylistic predecessor for his later mega-hit, Devil Went Down To Georgia.
Over the next 35 years Daniels has recorded southern rock, Gospel and even bluegrass, defying any attempts to pigeonhole his music.
His newest release, Deuces, due October 9, is a set of vocal duets with some of the biggest names in country, bluegrass and pop music. Charlie sings with Dolly Parton, Del McCoury, Brooks & Dunn and Marty Stuart – and even does one with Earl, Gary and Randy Scruggs.
Deuces will be released on Charlie’s Blue Hat Records, and distributed by Koch.
