The sudden death of Country Music Hall of Fame member Charlie Daniels this morning (7/6) is already shaking up the world of country music as Jason Aldean and Brad Paisley were some of the first superstars to comment on the big loss in the world.
Jason posted to Instagram just moments ago, “Man I am heartbroken to hear that Charlie Daniels passed away this morning. He was one of the nicest/kindest people I have ever met. Thanks for the musical legacy u left all of us. We will miss you Mr. Charlie!”
Brad Paisley also posted, “I wrote these words for Charlie’s biography. They ring even more true now. I’m so sad he’s gone, but I know he had no doubt about where he was going when this life was over. We have so many memories together, and I am so blessed to have known him. He beat the devil with his fiddle, and I’m sure he’s opening up his case and resining up his bow now to play for the Lord. Rest In Peace my friend. We love you. @thecharliedanielsband.”
Daniels died near his home in Nashville after suffering a stroke. He was 83 years old. Funeral arrangement are pending at this time.
