Publisher's Summary

The incredible story of a country music legend.
Few artists have left a more indelible mark on America's musical landscape than Charlie Daniels.
Listeners will experience a soft, personal side of Charlie Daniels that has never before been documented. In his own words, he presents the path from his post-Depression childhood to performing for millions as one of the most successful country acts of all time and what he has learned along the way. The book also includes insights into the many musicians that orbited Charlie's world, including Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Tammy, and many more.
Charlie was officially inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016, shortly before his 80th birthday. He now shares the inside stories from his earliest days in the 1940s to his self-taught guitar and fiddle playing high school days of the 1950s, through his rise to music stardom in the 1970s, '80s, and beyond.
Charlie Daniels presents a life lesson for all of us regardless of profession.
"Walk onstage with a positive attitude. Your troubles are your own and are not included in the ticket price. Some nights you have more to give than others, but put it all out there every show. You're concerned with the people who showed up, not the ones who didn't. So give them a show, and...never look at the empty seats!"

Couldn’t stop listening!!

This is one of the few books that I listened to the sample and couldn’t wait to hear the whole book. I probably did more work around my ranch so I could keep listening to him! What a story he tells about his life, his political views (which I believe is spot on!!) and his family. I plan on listening to again! Thanks Charlie, it was a wonder book to listen to as I groom Dogs and raked up leaves and such!

Like a Rocking Chair on Charlie's Front porch.

This Audio book is just like sitting on front porch with a glass of sweet tea with Charlie. Just like an 8 hours conversation. Charlie tells you the best stories from the heart. Not only is this book amazing & but his voice is so clear. Definitely recommend this for anyone. You don't have to be a Country music fan to enjoy this. Highest recommendation I've ever gave.
