Special Program Presented in Support of New Exhibit
Charlie Daniels: Million Mile Reflections Opening This Friday

 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 19, 2016) – The new exhibition Charlie Daniels: Million Mile Reflections
will open Friday, Sept. 23, at the Country Music Hall of Fame® and
Museum. The museum will celebrate the opening of the new exhibit with a
special program featuring the 2016 Country Music Hall of Fame inductee
on Saturday, Oct. 29, at 2 p.m. Hosted by museum editor Michael McCall, Daniels will discuss his career and perform a few songs.

A dynamic personality, a rousing performer, and a musical innovator,
Daniels brought rock and blues motifs into mainstream country music. He
began performing in his teens, in his native North Carolina, and, seven
decades later, still records and tours as leader of the Charlie Daniels
Band.

The program is included with museum admission and free to museum members. It will be streamed live at countrymusichalloffame.org/streaming.
Seating is limited; guests can reserve tickets beginning Tuesday, Sept.
20, at 10 a.m. via countrymusichalloffame.org. Limited seating will be
available at the door, day-of-show, for museum members or with museum
admission. After the program Daniels will sign copies of the CD Gather ‘Round: A Charlie Daniels Sampler, available for purchase exclusively from the Museum Store.

Running through March 2017, Charlie Daniels: Million Mile Reflections will include stagewear, guitars, awards, photos and more from Daniels’ personal collection. Exhibition highlights include:

  • 1979
    Grammy for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group, presented
    to the Charlie Daniels Band for “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.”
  • 1935
    National Style O resonator guitar with nickel-plated brass body and
    sandblasted Hawaiian scenes presented to Daniels by his friend Ronnie
    Van Zant of Lynyrd Skynyrd.
  • Daniels’
    leather duster with fringe, beadwork, snakeskin overlays and silver and
    gold medallions, worn on the cover of his 1991 album Renegade.
  • The
    first royalty check received by Daniels and issued by Elvis Presley
    Music Inc. in 1964. The check was written on January 24, 1964, twelve
    days after Presley recorded “It Hurts Me,” a song co-written by Daniels.
