‘The Devil Went Down to Georgia’ singer Charlie Daniels dies at 83

Country singer, songwriter, and musician Charlie Daniels died Monday after suffering a stroke. He was 83.

Daniels was a powerhouse in country music for decades. He got his start by co-writing the Elvis Presley song “It Hurts Me” in 1964, and played guitar, fiddle, and banjo on other major artists’ records early in his career.

Daniels launched his own singing career in 1971 with a self-titled debut album, and was widely known for his trademark 1979 No. 1 hit “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.”

Daniels and his eponymous band toured for decades.

He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016.

He will be remembered…….
