Charlie Daniels to Release New Album, ‘Night Hawk’


 LAUREN LAFFER •Sounds Like Nashville

Charlie Daniels will ring in his 80th birthday in a big way. Not only will he host his 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam, be featured in a Country Music Hall of Fame exhibitAND be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, but he will also release a brand new album.

Night Hawk will feature 10-tracks of cowboy songs remade with the Daniels spin.

“Most of our concepts about cowboys, and all things western, are mostly derived from movies and TV. Well, the truth of the matter is, the real cowboys are not glow in the dark characters who go around fighting rustlers and cleaning out saloons with their fists. The actual working cowboy is a hardworking, different breed who spends endless hours in the saddle and as Louis L’Amour said, they ‘ride for the brand.’ Night Hawk is a tribute to the working cowboy and his way of life,” said Daniels.

The project will be available beginning August 26 at, FYE, and wherever music is sold. Night Hawk will be available for pre-sale beginning August 15 and the first 100 autographed copies sold will be hand numbered by the legendary fiddle player himself.
