York, NY (March 27, 2014) – Charlie Daniels, best known for his No. 1
country hit “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” which became a platinum
single, topped both country and pop charts, won a Grammy Award, earned
three CMA trophies, became a cornerstone of the “Urban Cowboy” movie
soundtrack and propelled Daniels’ Million Mile Reflections album to triple-platinum sales levels, is set to release a new album Off The Grid—Doin’ It Dylan on April 1, 2014.  In support of Off The Grid, Daniels will be making the media rounds including stops at Kathie Lee & Co. (March 26th), Huckabee (March 29th), Morning Joe (March 31st), Access Hollywood (March 31st), Hannity (March 31st), Fox 411 (March 31st), The Artie Lange Show (March 31st), SiriusXM ‘Artist Confidential’ (March 31st), The Today Show (April 1st), ABC NewsNow (April 1st), The Better Show (April 6th), The Cain Conversation and more!

Off The Grid –Doin’ It Dylan,
is yet another example of the seemingly endless reservoirs of musical
creativity that the now 77 year young Daniels can effortlessly draw
upon.  The “playing the legend forward” beauty and respect in his
tribute to Dylan doesn’t go unnoticed in the tracks.

The new collection contains Daniels’ signature deft musical delivery on ten of Dylan’s finest writings:

  • Tangled Up In Blue
  • Times They Are a Changin’
  • I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight
  • Gotta Serve Somebody
  • I Shall Be Released
  • Country Pie
  • Mr. Tambourine Man
  • Hard Rains A Gonna Fall
  • Just Like A Woman
  • Quinn The Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)

“In the early days, Dylan sang his songs accompanied by himself on
guitar and harmonica and in the late sixties when he decided to add some
other instruments to his records and concerts the purists, who had
declared him poet laureate, prophet and spokesman for his generation,
came apart at the seams, castigating him for defiling the purity of his
genius with other musical influences,” says Daniels.  “When Dylan came
to town to record Nashville Skyline,
due to my friendship with Bob Johnston, Dylan’s producer at the time, I
was blessed to be a guitar player in the studio band on that album and
the next two, Self Portrait and New Morning, an experience that did a lot for my confidence, my career and legitimizing me as a serious musician.”

Charlie Daniels throughout his 50 plus years of creating his own new
definitions of music, has scored hits on rock, country, pop and
Christian charts. Skilled on guitar, fiddle, and mandolin, his
contributions to country and southern rock are legendary on the path of
platinum that’s carried him to virtually every music industry award and
accolade presented across multi-genres.

He was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in Jan. 2008 and has appeared
in commercials for UPS and GEICO auto insurance, where he was featured
playing fiddle in the television commercial.  His volunteer spirit,
support of American troops and down-to-earth philosophy has solidified
his reputation as a true American patriot and Christian.

Off The Grid will be released on Blue Hat Records in association with MRI and distributed by RED.
