Charlie Daniels Dead At 83
The master of fusing traditional country and rock together is with us no more.
The statement released from his publicist said Country music hall of famer, Charlie Daniels, died in the hospital from a stroke early monday morning in Tennessee.
In 2010, he had also suffered a "mild" stroke and had a pacemaker implanted in his chest in 2013 before continuing to tour and sing live. No word on if there is any correlation.
From the pickup man, to the gambler, and now the fiddler. The Country music community lost ANOTHER legend this year. Boy, what a rough one it's been.
The country music flag is flying at half mast today. RIP Charlie Daniels.— Luke Combs 🎤 (@lukecombs) July 6, 2020
