July 6th, 2020 was a day that the music world will never forget! It was a day Country Music lost an Icon, Charlie Daniels. Charlie was a husband, father, grandfather, Christian, patriot, and one of the greatest entertainers to ever walk on a stage. 

James Payne recalls, “I was privileged to work about 5 shows with Charlie on the TBN Network. He was such a nice, gentle, loving human being. He made everyone around him feel important. When my son was a student at Belmont, Charlie came there to help raise funds for the college and my son was assigned to host him. Charlie was so nice to my son. He invited him to his home for a Birthday Party. A dad never forgets that type of kindness to his children. Charlie was bigger than life, but humble as a child

A few weeks after Charlie left us, I felt I had to write something to honor him. I followed him on Twitter, and I knew how much he loved God and America! I wrote the first verse of CDB (Charlie Daniels Band) and then when I was in a writing session with Cliff Waddell, we finished the song. The hook line says “You can tell the devil Charlie wont’ be coming down to Georgia anymore!”
