CHARLIE DANIELS TO RELEASE NEW VERSION OF “RAGGED OLD FLAG” ON JULY 4TH


The Charlie Daniels Band To Perform This Friday (6/16) As Part of Fox & Friends All-American Summer Concert Series
 

NASHVILLE, Tenn.
– Few musical performers epitomize the American spirit with more
passion and fervor than Country Music Hall of Fame member Charlie
Daniels. The singer, who has sung of his unabashed patriotism time in
and time out during his career, is showcasing his love of the Red,
White, and Blue once again in his latest recording that will be
available for sale digitally on July 4th via iTunes, Amazon, Google Play among other digital platforms.

 
Daniels
has recorded a stirring version of the Johnny Cash standard “Ragged Old
Flag.” Written and recorded by “The Man In Black,” the song hit No. 31
on the Billboard Country Singles chart in 1974. The song still
garners airplay during the summer months on Classic Country stations
nationwide, particularly around the Fourth of July. Recording this song
allowed Charlie to combine two of his biggest passions – his country and
his love of Johnny Cash. Charlie is joined on this track by Mark “Oz”
Geist, Benghazi Warrior/Survivor and co-author of “13 Hours: The Inside
Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi.”
 
“These
lyrics are just as timely today as they were when Johnny originally
recorded them over four decades ago,” said the Grand Ole Opry star. “The
song demonstrates the passion and the love that we all should have for
this country – and the freedoms that we enjoy with it,” he said. “Of
course, it is always a joy to record a song written by the great Johnny
Cash. He was an American original, and someone that I consider myself
humbled and honored to call friend. Good songs, such as his, continue to
remain in style.”
 
Having
just turned 80 last fall – just a few weeks after his induction into
the Country Music Hall of Fame, Daniels is not slowing down in the
slightest. He continues to tour across the country, and will release a
new book, Never Look At The Empty Seats
on October 24. The book will document his legendary career, as well as
several of his many trips abroad in support of the United States
Military.
