CHARLIE DANIELS PHOTOS: GEORGE KAMPER
he Encyclopedia of Southern Culture says, “Few individuals have symbolized the South in popular culture as directly and indelibly as Charlie Daniels.” In fact, Daniels is both partly western and
partly southern. His signature bull-rider hat and belt buckle; his lifestyle at Twin Pines Ranch; and his love of horses, cowboy lore, the heroes of championship rodeo, western movies, and Louis L’Amour novels identify him as a westerner. But he is a southerner by birth, and his music—rock, country, bluegrass, blues, and gospel—is quintessentially southern.
