In a recent press release, promoters shared that Charlie Daniels Band is touring to promote their first new studio album since 2007, Off the Grid – Doin’ It Dylan, a tribute to Bob Dylan (released April 1, 2014), Phoenicians can expect a wonderful mix of music - new and classic – when the Charlie Daniels Band rolls into the valley this winter.

"Having new material to play on the live show is like pouring a little hot sauce on your morning eggs, just adds a little extra zest to the set," says the 77-year-old Charlie Daniels.

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.

Raised in 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,” and he played on such landmark albums as Bob Dylan’s Nashville Skyline.

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 CMA Awards.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Celebrity Theatre is located 4 blocks south of the Loop 202 freeway, at 440 N. 32nd St
