Country Music Hall of Fame to Induct Charlie Daniels & Randy Travis

Charlie Daniels, Randy Travis and Fred Foster will be the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame. The trio will be inducted later this fall.

Charlie Daniels has been a favorite in country music since he let loose with the mega-hit, ‘Devil Went Down to Georgia’. The high-energy, fiddlin’ tune is one that Daniels says he looks forward to playing at the end of each concert.

“I get a chance to play it better tonight than I did last night and better tomorrow night than I did tonight. I haven’t played it perfect yet. I am in love with walking on stage and entertaining people with songs I have written. It’s one of the few times in my life that I feel like I know what I’m doing.”

 

While Daniels will be inducted in the Veteran’s Era category,  Travis will be the 2016 inductee in the Modern Era category. Randy Travis found a huge success in the 80’s, with hits like ‘Forever and ever, Amen’ and ‘I told you so’.
