Charlie Daniels on Don Imus

Charlie Daniels on Don Imus : Great American Country
April 13, 2007 — Charlie Daniels was at a Nashville bookstore Wednesday night signing copies of Growing Up Country, a compilation of essays on the subject that he edited.

Since Charlie has been accused of political incorrectness once or twice WKRN's Brad Schmitt asked him about the Don Imus controversy.

'I am very dead set against what Don Imus said,' Charlie said. 'I think it's terrible.'

But, he added, the critics of the radio personality should cast a wider net. 'While we're at it, let's get with the rappers, let's get with the other people that say things like this with impunity,' he said. 'If we're gonna persecute one guy, let's persecute 'em all.' "
