Charlie Daniels To Come Back Strong Monday Night

On Saturday, his Tennessee Volunteers were crushed by the Florida Gators.
On Sunday, his Tennessee Titans were stomped by the San Diego Chargers.

But Monday is a new day, and Daniels and his band have worked with ESPN to help make the intro for “Monday Night Football” as Peyton Manning and his Denver Broncos travel to Atlanta to face Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons. Charlie Daniels and his band are the opening act for ESPN’s “Monday Night Football.”

Charlie reworked “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” to lead the telecast.
He points out that he’s not used to working in only a minute and 18 seconds!
The original version about the Devil coming to Georgia to procure souls (3 minutes, 37 seconds) was No. 1 on the U.S. country charts in 1979 and still is played today on radio stations.

“People are asking me who I think is going to win Monday night, but I don’t have a dog in the hunt,” Daniels said. “I’m just going to enjoy this game. I think this could be one of the great games of the year.”  And the game involves one of our Tennessee heroes in Peyton Manning says Charlie.

I recently interviewed Charlie on my morning show and asked him about doing the Monday Night Football thing and he said: ” I’d just sit around my living room and play guitar anyway, I might as well get paid!”

Hank Williams Junior previously sang the theme song until last year.
