Tickets on sale now for Grammy-winning Grand Ole Opry member
WEST SILOAM SPRINGS, Okla. – From his Dove Award-winning gospel albums to his genre-defining Southern rock anthems and his CMA Award-winning country hits, few artists have left a more indelible mark on America’s musical landscape than Charlie Daniels. On June 6, the Charlie Daniels Band takes the Qualla Ballroom stage inside Cherokee Casino & Hotel West Siloam Springs for an intimate performance.
Concert begins at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 and available at the hotel front desk and on our website.
Daniels began his career playing bluegrass music with the Misty Mountain Boys. After moving to Nashville in 1967 he began making a name for himself as a songwriter, session musician and music producer. His first Top 10 hit came in 1972 with “Uneasy Rider,” after forming the Charlie Daniels Band. From there the band saturated the radio waves with memorable hits like “Long Haired Country Boy,” “The South’s Gonna Do It Again,” “In America,” “The Legend of Wooley Swamp” and, of course, his signature 1979 song, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.” The latter single won a Grammy for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group in 1979, as well as Country Music Association Awards’ Single of the Year.
While his live shows have always been diverse, his discography has also reflected Charlie’s love of multiple genres. In 1994 he released his first Christian album, “The Door,” on Sparrow Records. The album won the Gospel Music Association’s Dove Award for Best Country Album, and the single “Two Out of Three” from the album was named Video of the Year by the Christian Country Music Association.
In 1997, Sony Wonder released Daniels’ first children’s album, “By The Light of The Moon: Campfire Songs and Cowboy Tunes.”
A beloved mentor to young artists and still a road warrior at age 81, Daniels has parlayed his passion for music into a multiplatinum career and a platform to support the military, underprivileged children and others in need.
