Charlie Daniels fans will get a chance to spend Independence Day weekend with the country/Southern rock mainstay, at least via radio.
He's set to host the America’s Opry Weekend Star-Spangled Special, which will feature live Grand Ole Opry performances, current country hits and patriotic tunes (expect music from the likes of Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Brad Paisley, and the host).
The special is a fitting lead-up to Daniels' upcoming release: He'll issue a compilation dubbed Land That I Love on August 10, with patriotic songs and two new tunes, 'What This World Needs is a Few More Rednecks' and 'Iraq Blues' (those new songs will also be made available digitally on July 4)."
