Over his decades-long career, which began in the '50s, Daniels produced a number of hits with his band, including "Long Haired Country Boy" and "The Devil Went Down to Georgia".

A statement from his publicist said the Country Music Hall of Famer died Monday at a hospital in Hermitage, Tennessee, after doctors said he had a stroke.

In an entertainment industry that shuns and rejects conservative voices, Daniels was an ardent supporter of the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, law enforcement, military, the death penalty, the Bible, and just about any other conservative-leaning value that would get an artist cancelled these days.

While Sklar did not have a chance to meet Daniels personally he described Daniels as a raunchy rebel, and the ideal guy to be playing at a country music jamboree.

"What a hero. A true patriot, Christian, and country music icon". "Thank you for all your contributions on and off the stage. God bless you Charlie Daniels".

More than 30 years later, his outspokenness prompted him to withdraw from the Country Freedom Concert in Nashville, which honored September 11 rescue workers. Beginning in the early 1970s, his five-piece band toured endlessly, sometimes doing 250 shows a year. "If they say, 'Baton Rouge, ' I can say, 'I've played there.' There's not a city we haven't played in", Daniels said in 1998. "I'm in competition to be better tonight than I was last night and to be better tomorrow than tonight".

Born and raised in rural North Carolina before moving to Nashville, Daniels started his career as a recording session musician, causing Daniels' music to span genres and generations of artists.

Daniels said his favorite place to play was "anywhere with a good crowd and a good paycheck".

In 2008, Daniels was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, and in 2016, he became a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. For the last four years, almost every day, Daniels would tweet the message, "22 VETERANS COMMIT SUICIDE EVERY DAY!"

Last month, criticising the anti-racist protesters taking to the streets, Daniels wrote on his website that the demonstrations "against the unjust killing of a black man" were not simple protests, "but a revolutionary street battle against America and everything we stand for". He had a pacemaker implanted in 2013 but continued to take the stage to perform.
