When: Friday, Oct 20, 2017 8:00 PM (Doors open at 7:00 PM) Door Time: 7:00 PM Show Type: Country From his Dove Award winning gospel albums to his genre-defining Southern rock anthems and his CMA Award-winning country hits, few artists have left a more indelible mark on America’s musical landscape than Charlie Daniels. An outspoken patriot, beloved mentor to young artists and still a road warrior at age 80, Charlie has parlayed his passion for music into a multi-platinum career and a platform to support the military, underprivileged children and others in need. Raised among the longleaf pines of North Carolina, Charlie began his career playing bluegrass music with the Misty Mountain Boys. After moving to Nashville in 1967, he began making a name for himself as a songwriter, session musician and producer. Elvis Presley recorded a tune Charlie co-wrote titled “It Hurts Me,” which was released on the flip side of “Kissin’ Cousins.” He played on such landmark albums as Bob Dylan’s Nashville Skyline and tried his hand at producing on the Youngbloods’ Elephant Mountain and Ride the Wind. His own unique voice as an artist emerged as Charlie recorded his self-titled solo album in 1970 for Capitol Records. Two years later he formed the Charlie Daniels Band and the group scored its first hit with the top ten “Uneasy Rider.” Since then the CDB has populated radio with such memorable hits as “Long Haired Country Boy,” “The South’s Gonna Do It Again,” “In America,” “The Legend of Wooley Swamp” and of course, his signature song, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” which won a Grammy for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group in 1979 as well as single of the year at the Country Music Association Awards. The CDB performed 100+ concert dates in 2016 including performances on the Grand Ole Opry and will begin touring in March for a full performance schedule in 2017. “I love what I do,” says Charlie of his 50-plus years in the music business. “I look forward to entertaining people. When show time gets here, I’m ready to go, ready to go play for them. It’s a labor of love. I just thank God I make a living at what I enjoy doing.” Scooter Brown Band After 4 years and 3 months, 2 tours overseas with 1 tour of combat in Iraq as a United States Marine, Scott Brown traded his guns in for guitars and hit the road. The Scooter Brown Band was formed in 2005 and played mainly in and around Houston, Texas. It wasn't until 2009 with the release of their first studio album, "Between Hell & Texas," that they gained a notable presence in the Texas music scene. Along with their growing notoriety came their first radio single "Apology." Other radio releases were soon to follow and include "Whiskey Talkin", "Soldiers Christmas Eve", "Feels Like Home,", and "Summer Song". In 2010, Scooter Brown Band put out the album "LIVE at BIG TEXAS". In 2013, they followed up with their next studio album, "VALOR." The newest self-titled album "Scooter Brown Band" released on September 18, 2015. SBB has toured Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Wisconsin, New York, Washington D.C., and Tennessee, headlining shows and opening for some of the biggest names in the business. In 2016, Scooter Brown Band was fortunate enough to join forces with well established Nashville booking agents at APA. With 2 of the 4 members being prior military, the band spends a lot of time doing work for Veteran Support Organizations like Base Camp 40 - Warriors in the Wild, Lone Survivor Foundation, and the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation.
