Country Stars Share Their Own Charlie Daniels Memories and Moments




Once the news of the death of country music’s legendary songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist Charlie Daniels was out, the country community came out in full force to share their memories of the man who meant so much to so many.

Travis Tritt posted a picture that speaks volumes about his love for Daniels. “My heart is crushed today after hearing that my dear friend Charlie Daniels has passed away. Charlie was the first legendary artist to take me under his wing and encourage me when I was first getting started in the business. He was always there for me when I needed him. I have so many great memories of touring, performing, writing and recording with Charlie, but my favorite memories are of simply talking with the man when it was just the two of us alone,” Tritt wrote. “Farewell dear friend until we meet again. Thank you for being such a friend, mentor and inspiration to me. I will always be grateful.”

And even for newcomer Luke Combs, the country great’s passing has hit him hard.
