Nashville Records™ Announces The Legendary Charlie Daniels For The USS New York Project
NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nashville Records, Inc. announces the legendary Charlie Daniels for the USS New York Project. He will perform the song “The USS New York” for the recordings and performances for the christening and commissioning of the ship.
Daniels is best known for his smash hit, "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," which topped both country and pop charts, won a Grammy Award, earned three CMA trophies, became a cornerstone of the Urban Cowboy movie soundtrack and propelled Daniel's Million Mile Reflections album to triple-platinum sales. More hits include, "In America," "Uneasy Rider," "The South's Gonna Do It," "Long Haired Country Boy" and a catalog that represents millions of sales.
The Charlie Daniels Band has twice been voted the Academy of Country Music's touring band of the year and has often exceeded 250 concert dates per year throughout a music career that surpasses an incredible four decades of hit generating legacy. Daniels still maintains an incredibly busy concert schedule.
Several name artists were considered for this song and project but ultimately the Company felt Daniels was the perfect choice. Previous press releases announced the USS New York, which is a Naval ship being commissioned, and was built in part with 24 tons of steel from the World Trade Center. Nashville Records™ holds the exclusive rights of performance and sales distribution. This song will also be included on Nashville Records™ upcoming Patriotic Album in connection to the USS New York, which will feature some of the industry’s biggest stars. The support for theses two projects increases daily with music industry, media, and military support.
