Daniels went down to Greenville for concert

GREENVILLE — Another country music legend comes to Greenville next week, and he’s bringing decades of songs with him.

The Charlie Daniels Band is scheduled to appear one week from tomorrow at Greenville Municipal Auditorium. Daniels will be promoting his latest album, “Hits Of The South”, which features not only several of his classics, but chart toppers from other famous southern music groups as well.

Daniels, who has had a more than 50-year career in the music industry, said it was time to offer his fans a collection of some of the greatest country songs ever. He explained it made sense to combine all of the various genres together.

“It just seemed very natural,” Daniels said in a recent interview with the Herald-Banner. “This music became part of our lives and part of our history.”

The CD contains “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”, “Long Haired Country Boy” and “The South’s Gonna Do It”, along with Daniels’ versions of “Sharp Dressed Man”, “Can’t You See” and more.

Daniels said those coming to the show will get to hear many of his biggest hits during the concert. Daniels admits to this current tour being among the most enjoyable he’s ever had.

“We’re just going to have fun with it,” Daniels said. “This is the best band I’ve ever had and we really enjoy playing together.”

The concert is scheduled for 7 p.m., Thursday, November 7 at the Greenville Municipal Auditorium (GMA), 2821 Washington Street.

Tickets range from $40 to $70. Those wanting more information can call 903-457-2994 or visit www.ShowtimeAtTheGMA.com.

GMA events are partially staffed by volunteers from United Way of Hunt County, who work without compensation, but who are grateful to accept donations for the non-profit organization from concert attendees.
