Legendary country music star Charlie Daniels and his Band rounded out their most recent Stars for Stripes tour in support of U.S. service members with a rousing performance Tuesday evening at Camp Liberty in Baghdad.
Performing to an enthusiastic crowd of more than 500 military and civilian fans, the band performed many old favorites, including 'Redneck Fiddlin’ Man' and 'The Devil Went Down To Georgia.'
Opening for Daniels was 'Stony Creek,' an ensemble from the 4th Infantry Division Band that also delighted Soldiers by belting out various country twangs.
Many of the Soldiers convoyed from other base camps in the Multi-National Division-Baghdad area of operations to enjoy the outdoor concert, which was held in front of the 4th Inf. Div. headquarters.
