Charlie Daniels Releases New Album ‘Night Hawk’ August 26

Charlie Daniels: Night Hawk

2016 Inductee to The Country Music Hall of Fame Shows No Signs of Slowing Down Amidst Induction, Museum Exhibit and 80th Birthday Celebrations

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 11, 2016) – Charlie Daniels has never fit into any certain label, purposely creating a sound and blend of music all his own. The new album, Night Hawk, stays true to that tradition with Daniels putting a unique spin on cowboy songs both well known and uncovered from through the years. The album will be available on August 26 at, FYE, and wherever music is sold.

Night Hawk will be available for presale on August 15 here where the first 100 autographed copies sold will also be hand numbered by Charlie Daniels himself.

“Most of our concepts about cowboys, and all things western, are mostly derived from movies and TV. Well, the truth of the matter is, the real cowboys are not glow in the dark characters who go around fighting rustlers and cleaning out saloons with their fists. The actual working cowboy is a hard working, different breed who spend endless hours in the saddle and as Louis L’Amour said, they ‘ride for the brand.’ Night Hawk is a tribute to the working cowboy and his way of life,” said Charlie Daniels.

Night Hawk is a reflection of stories from the trail told by cowboys around the campfire through the years. Many of the songs, introduced in an acoustic style, are obscure songs with deep meaningful lyrics, while some are classics presented in a new way.
