    I enjoyed his music, if I have my facts straight he is/was quite the Trump supporter. Nevertheless he played a mean fiddle.
    I didn't realize he was that old.

    Damn I need to whip up a "go fund me" for my funeral. Getting old.

    “Charlie Daniels, I felt I had a lot in common with Charlie. The kind of phrases he’d use, his sense of humor, his relationship to work, his tolerance for certain things. Felt like we had dreamed the same dream with all the same distant places.” Bob Dylan.
