A tribute to Charlie Daniels - my photographs of him from the Grand Ole Opry House

It was back in the summer of 2011 when I made my one and only visit to the Grand Ole Opry House in Tennessee. I was there with a couple of other photographers / videographers for a project and we happened to squeeze in time for a show.

We had no idea who would be on the lineup that evening, and were treated to a performance by Charlie Daniels.

I was sad today to see that he passed away at the age of 83.

I can tell you this, even at the age of 74, that man knew how to put on a show!

During his performance of "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" he was tearing up his bow.

Even though I am not hugely knowledgeable about the old time country music stars, I knew about Charlie Daniels. I loved the "Devil Goes Down..." song and it was such a blast to be there to experience his performance live and right up front of the stage.

I am sure that his legend will live on for quite some time!

Beautiful shots of him. I saw in concert back in the early 80's in Alabama and it was so great.
