The Charlie Daniels Band are heading out on tour to support their new album, ‘Off the Grid – Doin’ It Dylan.’

The album is the legendary band’s first new studio release since 2007. They will be playing close to 100 shows over the summer and fall in support of the project, which hits shelves on April 1.

“Having new material to play on the live show is like pouring a little hot sauce on your morning eggs, just adds a little extra zest to the set,” Daniels says in a press release.

The record is a tribute to Bob Dylan, featuring 10 Dylan songs re-imagined by Daniels, including ‘Mr. Tambourine Man,’ ‘I Shall Be Released’ and ‘I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight.’ Daniels first became familiar with Dylan when he played on a couple of the icon’s early records, including ‘Nashville Skyline.’

“It was about 50 years ago when I first became aware of Bob Dylan — and no, I was not naive enough to think I could swim in the same stream, try to emulate what he had done, or cop his licks. Nobody could do that,” Daniels recalls. “My ambitions were to provoke some thought, to color the imagery of my songs, to think outside the box of conformity — in other words to be myself.”

‘Off The Grid – Doin’ It Dylan’ is available for pre-order on Amazon.
