Daniels' hits included "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," "Simple Man," "Long Haired Country Boy," "Uneasy Rider," "Drinkin' My Baby Goodbye" and more. He was a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Grand Ole Opry and the Musicians Hall of Fame.
The legendary musician and entertainer was a dedicated supporter of the U.S. military, especially veterans. Daniels died on Monday (July 6), at the age of 83, after suffering a hemorrhagic stroke. His family asks that in lieu of flowers, fans make a donation to the Journey Home Project, which Daniels and his manager, David Corlew, founded in 2014 to help address a wide array of needs for U.S. veterans.
Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee has ordered the State of Tennessee to fly all flags at half-mast from sunrise until sundown on Friday to honor Daniels.
