He's playing tomorrow at the best and most intimate outside venue here in Mass. The Indian Ranch, Webster, Mass. This is the only place left where you can bring coolers and grills. It's a camp ground also!! An afternoon gig!! Charlie loves to play here and the crowd loves him too!! Should get good and rowdy!! YEEEEE HAWWWWWWW!!!!

One of my all time favorite musicians............He is another great guitarist from NC

I had the pleasure meeting him a couple of times years back. Me on the right wearing the Cowboy hat...... I was around 20 years old when this was taken. (1978). Taken backstage at Carolwinds. The Outlaws and Wet Willie opened.

Susea, it's ironic that you bring up Charlie Daniels this close to 9-11. Everybody remembers what they were doing on 9-11 when the planes hit the towers. Well I was having a little political/idealogical discussion with Charlie Daniels via the internet. Charlie representing the "Right" and yours truely a decidedly more "Left" of the dial viewpoint. It was really a surreal moment in my life.

He is a talented man and I loved him when I saw him in the early 90s, but I soured on him when he became born again and all conservative, actually changing words in some of his classic songs. I'm glad I got to see him before that because I love his early music.

Love the CDB...saw 'em here earlier this year. Was great until they played 'Rocky Top' and the gospel crap. The crowd booed a lot.

Charlie has done such a great job keeping the original band from the 70's intact. Charlie is a national treasure IMO. He still gives 100% every show. He is a devout christian who speaks his mind. I am a liberal, but agree with him on many views especially when it is subjects like child abuse, pedophiles, and supporting our troops now, and past veterens. At 72, he hasn't slowed his schedule down a bit. I really appreciate what he has given me musically through his long career.

Deb and Jack were the only ones to notice the blow up doll!! LMAO!!

I do know his political and gospel stuff can be a turn off and that he has changed some of the wording but I still love him! I have one of his bows as he threw it right to me the last time I saw him. I'm going to get some video tomorrow if I can!

Have a great time Susea -- have ALWAYS wanted to check out that venue

Charlie rocks -- a little too right wing at times for me but have loved his music for years & he's a great guy & musician -- and the way he wears his patriotism & beliefs on his sleeve is to be admired too ("It Ain't No Rag, It's The Flag" -- "In America" -- "America, I Believe In You" -- "American Farmer" -- "MIA" -- "Still In Saigon"...)

not being able to attend shows like this hurts...$10/hr, no $, crummy car -- all on my plate as someone who fits into the workaday world the way a fish would fit on dry land...

That looks like a fun outdoor venue; I'm going have to make it over there sometime.

I interviewed Charlie Daniels about three years ago. I can't describe how cool it was to answer my home phone and have the voice on the other end say, "Hi Jim, this is Charlie Daniels."

It was like talking to someone I've known for years, and he even asked me about recent shows that I had seen. He was especially interested in Dickey Betts and, wanted to know what the current Allman Brothers Band was like without him.

He also overnighted me two of his latest cd's and a bunch of 8 by 10 photos of him and his band, so I would have them for my article. It's a job, but sometimes I can't help but excited when things like that happen.

Ok, this is wierd. I have about 1000 cd's loaded onto my computer, and am now playing all of their songs randomly. Guess what just came up? It's the song "Texas" from one of the cd's that Charlie sent me. Sounds good!

I agree. The 1st time I saw that pic I immedietly thought it was George and Tommy, rather than Taz and Crain.

I'll bet that pic is from one of the Volunteer Jams.

The last CD I purchased of Chalies was maybe 5 years ago and I was pleasantly surprised to see so many of the members of his band from the 70's still with him. Is it still that way?

What a great show and I do dare to say this may have been my best of his yet! Seen many, many over the years but this one... WOW!! We didn't get any gospel stuff just all the classics and yes Long Haired Country Boy says "I get up in the morning, I get down in the afternoon" instead of "I get stoned in the morning and get drunk in the afternoon" otherwise it was right on word for word. The band is very tight!! Taz has been with him for 38 years and from my area just dresses different now!! Hehe!! This is the 17th year they have played at Indian Ranch so if they play next year they will break a record for the top amount of shows for a performer... I didn't get any video, sorry... too busy foot stoppin' all around! Man what a lively croud!! Heck I was even thanked by a few folks after the show for my appreciation and dedication... I guess it showed! LOL! After all these years I certainly sing along to all the songs and I rallied the crowd quite a bit!! LOL!

Some of the set list was like this...

Boogie Woogie Fiddle Country Blues
Caballo Diablo
Drinkin' My Baby Goodbye
Saddle Tramp
Trudy
Simple Man
The Pledge of Allegiance
The Star-Spangled Banner
In America
The Legend of Wooly Swamp
No Potion for the Pain
Long Haired Country Boy
The South's Gonna Do It Again
Rainbow Ride
Devil Went Down To Georgia

There was also a new instrumental that was superb!! It's actually a couple years old but one day may make it to an album! It really showcases every member The drummer was fun as he hit the skins quite well and interacted with the crowd during his solo then Charlie has an ongoing joke (for 17 yrs) with "who can pronounce the name of the lake" most of us call it Webster lake but the proper name is this...

Lake Chaubunagungamaug also known as "Webster Lake", is a lake in the town of Webster, Massachusetts, United States. It is located near the Connecticut border and has a surface area of 1,442 acres.
Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg, a 45-letter alternative name for this body of water, is often cited as the longest place name in the United States and one of the longest in the world. Today, "Webster Lake" may be the name most used, but some (including many residents of Webster), take pride in reeling off the longer versions.

LMAO!! Now you know why we call is Webster Lake! No one can pronounce it but this guy on drums finally got it down! Was quite impressive!
