Getting to shred with @TheChrisLeDoux AND @CharlieDaniels on the same stage was one of the most magical nights ever. Go rest high Charlie- and blessings today to all of your family.
With love and friendship always.

I’m sad for the world and for his family…but I’m smiling a little because the angel band in Heaven just got themselves one heck of a fiddle player…see you again, one day, sweet Charlie Daniels. ❤️❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/8DmJ26Qjvl

I wrote these words for Charlie’s biography. They ring even more true now. I’m so sad he’s gone. But I know he had no doubt about where he was going when this life was over. We have so many memories together, and I am so blessed to have known him. He beat the devil with his fiddle, and I’m sure he’s opening up his case and resining up his bow now to play for the Lord. Rest In Peace my friend. We love you. @thecharliedanielsband #charliedaniels

The word “legend” gets tossed around so easily these days, but not in this case… he was #BeyondLegendary. This is one of my absolute favorites… “The Legend of Wooly Swamp” #CharlieDaniels pic.twitter.com/kSsqVwmsFf

Charlie Daniels was the nicest country artist I’ve ever had the chance to spend moments around. His music and talent speaks for itself, but boys and girls it’s the legacy you leave behind and your character. It doesn’t get better than Charlie Daniels. Rest In Peace Charlie. 😢

Rest In Peace Charlie Daniels, my fellow North Carolinian. I was honored to receive NC’s Order of the Long Leaf Pine Award from you backstage at the Opry in 2017. Thank you for your sharing your talent and your kindness with all of us. pic.twitter.com/FImllzA9NY
