Charlie to set foot in Plymouth : "'I used to say, 'I'm not an outlaw; I'm an outcast,'' says the Grammy Award winning star. 'When it gets right down to the nitty gritty, I've just tried to be who I am. I've never followed trends or fads. I couldn't even if I tried. I can't be them; I can't be anybody but me.'
Charlie Daniels will definitely be himself when he makes his Plymouth Memorial Hall debut on Friday, Sept. 2 at 7:30 p.m. For decades, he has steadfastly refused to label his music as anything other than 'CDB music,' music that is now sung around the fire at 4-H Club and scout camps, helped elect an American President, and been popularized on a variety of radio formats.
When you hear a classic Charlie Daniels Band performance like 'The Devil Went Down to Georgia,' you hear music that knows no clear genre. Is it a folk tale? A southern boogie? A country fiddle tune? An electric rock anthem? The answer is 'yes' to all of that and more. And the same goes for 'In America,' 'Uneasy Rider,' 'The South's Gonna Do It,' 'Long Haired Country Boy,' 'Still in Saigon,' 'The Legend of Wooley Swamp,' and the rest of a catalog that spans more than 35 years of record making and represents more than 18 million in sales."
