Opry Member Charlie Daniels To Perform In Nashville

Grand Ole Opry member Charlie Daniels will perform in concert, in Nashville, for the first time in 4 years on August 27th at the Wildhorse Saloon. The concert is presented by Nashville Songwriters Association International. His last Nashville concert was on July 4, 2005.

The past couple of years have been good to him as he was inducted into the Grand Ole opry in 2008 and on October 12, he will be inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame for his session work with Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.

A couple of comments:
>If you are ever in Nashville, I urge you to visit the Charlie Daniels gift shop and museum in downtown Nashville. The gift shop is nothing fancy and has the same items you would find at any Nashville shop. But, the museum is great. Lots of pictures, displays and awards. And, it is free!!! His Opry Member Award is front and center.

>Also in Nashville is the Musicians Hall of Fame. Again, if you have never been there, it is great. A little hard to find, but it covers all the studio musicians from the Nashville sound to the Wrecking Crew in California. It covers the session musicians from Motown and Muscle Shores. The admission is not that high, and it is laid out very well.
