Charlie Daniels Band

CHARLIE DANIELS BAND RETURNS TO THE DIAMOND CENTER

The Charlie Daniels Band is making a return to Desert Diamond Casinos & Entertainment’s Diamond Center on Saturday, Dec. 9, 2017. Tickets start at $25 and go on sale Saturday, Oct. 14 through Star Tickets and at Desert Diamond Casino’s Rewards Center. Doors open at 7 p.m.; show starts at 8 p.m.

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. He began his career playing bluegrass music with the Misty Mountain Boys. After moving to Nashville in 1967, however, he began making a name for himself as a songwriter, session musician and producer. 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 Charlie Daniels Band 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 Country Music Association Awards. Last year he recorded and released his newest album, “Night Hawk,” a unique spin on cowboy songs both well known and uncovered from through the years.
