Brad Paisley, Luke Combs, & More Remember Charlie Daniels: ‘The Country Music Flag Is Flying at Half Mast’

Country rocker and fiddler Charlie Daniels died Monday morning (July 6) from a hemorrhagic stroke, his publicist confirmed. He was 83.

Luke Combs shared on Twitter, “The country music flag is flying at half mast today,” regarding the news of Daniels’ passing, while Aaron Watson and Jamey Johnson wrote they imagined “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” legend “fiddlin’ in heaven” with his “new one made of gold.”

Brad Paisley remembered the words of praise he wrote for Daniels’ autobiography Never Look at the Empty Seats: A Memoir from 2017. “A tale of hard work, musical discovery, and faith, Charlie Daniels’s journey has been one of a kind,” the note read from Paisley’s Twitter tribute along with photos of the two country singers over the years. “Equal parts rebel rouser and apostle, it’s no small coincidence he launched his career by beating the Devil with a fiddle in hand. I love this man, the things he stands for, and his music. What a story.”

I wrote these words for Charlie’s biography. They ring even more true now.
I’m so sad he’s gone.
We have so many memories together, and I am so blessed to have known him.
Rest In Peace my friend. We love you. @CharlieDaniels pic.twitter.com/3Pg5eWPtIf

Charlie Daniels was the nicest country artist I’ve ever had the chance to spend moments around. His music and talent speaks for itself, but boys and girls it’s the legacy you leave behind and your character. It doesn’t get better than Charlie Daniels. Rest In Peace Charlie.

RIP Charlie Daniels… wow… what an absolute legend. Got to see him play at the Opry one time and sat on the stage right behind him. Won’t ever forget it! 2020 has got to go!

We played a show with Charlie Daniels a couple years ago and it was one of the best live performances I had ever seen. RIP to a legend.
