Charlie Daniels Talks About His New Album, Volunteer Jam And Touring At 80 #CD80

If you are a true country fan, then you know The Charlie Daniels Band and their arguably most popular song, “The Devil Went Down To Georgia.” I also consider, “The South’s Gonna Do It Again,” and “Boogie Woogie Fiddle Country Blues,” to be staples for the true Charlie Daniels Band connoisseur along with my personal favorite, “The Legend Of Wooley Swamp.” Recently inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame, Charlie Daniels also turns 80 next week. With a career spanning literally decades, did I mention that he still does at least 100 shows a year? We got the chance to talk with Charlie Daniels this morning and try to find out where he gets all that energy from.

Phil Vassar Interview: Songwriting, Kellie Pickler & Songs From The Cellar

Phil Vassar Interview: Songwriting, Kellie Pickler & Songs From The Cellar

Yesterday, I got to chat on the phone with Phil Vassar. Yes, ladies, I got to talk to Phil Vassar on Valentine’s Day. ;) Seriously, though, he is one heck of a great songwriter and a talented singer in his own right. He’s written something for what seems like everybody in Nashville, so you have probably heard tons of his creativity even while you might not have been aware. My personal favorite songs of his are “I’ll Take That As A Yes” and “This Is God.” Check out my Phil Vassar interview and be sure to catch him locally this Saturday night at Phase 2 in his hometown of Lynchburg, Va.
