As "Duck Dynasty's" Phil Robertson remains under fire for his recent anti-gay comments, country artist Charlie Daniels comes to his defense.

The "Devil Went Down To Georgia" singer says, "It's a sorry day in America when a man speaks his mind and gets suspended from work for expressing heartfelt religious opinions."

"A and E I think I think you trampled Phil Robertson's civil rights and ran off a significant bunch of viewers. Only time will tell," the country legend stated in a follow-up post.

The cast of Duck Dynasty released an album of Christmas songs earlier this year. Several country artists including George Strait and Luke Bryan appear on the disc, "Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas." The album topped the Billboard country charts and is one of the best-selling of the past quarter.
