Daniels is now an official member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, and he’s still not sure he can allow himself to believe this honor has been bestowed upon him. The singer, whose signature song is “The Devil Went Down To Georgia,” is very humbled at being in an elite group of his heroes, including Earl Scruggs, Hank Williams Jr. and Kitty Wells. He is very proud that his Hall of Fame plaque hangs on the wall beside these men and women and many other of his peers.
Charlie Edward Daniels was born October 28th , 1936 in Wilmington, NC. Charlie’s first music score was as co-writer of “It Hurts Me” recorded by Elvis Presley in 1964. It was that song that Trisha Yearwood sang before Charlie took the stage to speak at the Country Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
