FORSYTH — The Charlie Daniels Band is headlining the Rosebud-Treasure County Fair in Forsyth on July 19.

Daniels has gold, platinum and multiplatinum albums to his credit, in addition to multiple Country Music Association awards and a Grammy Award. Daniels is also a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

Daniels’ music is sung around the fire at 4-H Clubs and scout camps and played on a variety of radio formats.

Daniels broke through as a hit maker with the 1973 album “Honey In the Rock” and its hit hippie song “Uneasy Rider.” His rebel anthems “Long Haired Country Boy” and “The South’s Gonna Do It” propelled his 1975 collection, “Fire On the Mountain,” to double platinum status.

Following stints on the Capitol and Kama Sutra record labels, Epic Records signed him to its rock roster in New York in 1976. The contract, reportedly worth $3 million, was the largest ever given to a Nashville act up to that time.

In the summer of 1979 Daniels rewarded the company’s faith by delivering “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” which became a platinum single, topped both country and pop charts and won a Grammy Award.

“I used to say, I’m not an outlaw, I’m an outcast,” Daniels said. “When it gets right down to the nitty gritty, I’ve just tried to be who I am. I’ve never followed trends or fads. I couldn’t even if I tried. I can’t be them; I can’t be anybody but me.”
