Mr. Charlie Daniels hits the nail on the head with his new contribution ‘Night Hawk,’ which officially drops August 26. The album will be available at www.CharlieDaniels.com, FYE, and wherever music is sold. ‘Night Hawk’ will also be available for pre-sale on August 15 at his site where the first 100 autographed copies sold will also be hand-numbered by Charlie Daniels himself.
The 2016 Country Music Hall Of Fame inductee is still as fresh as a spring chicken with this contribution to classic country and the western genre. The whole album could serve as the soundtrack to a western movie. Somebody call the Coen Brothers immediately! Charlie and Co. put a very unique spin on several fantastic songs with also a slight hint of traditional bluegrass in the mix (in my opinion). Charlie is one of the last true great artists still alive. This phenomenal album is worth listening to from beginning to end. I can’t remember the last time I listened to an album from start to finish until I got my hands on this one. It gave me a great feeling of nostalgia and a yearning to watch an old John Wayne movie or a spaghetti Western starring Clint Eastwood. In the fall/early winter, I will probably be playing these tunes in my backyard while huddled around my fire pit. Long live Charlie Daniels and God Bless him! He puts his heart and soul in preserving the heart and soul of real cowboys and their way of life.
