“Few individuals have symbolized the South in popular culture as directly and indelibly as Charlie Daniels.” Charlie Daniels is partly Western and partly Southern. His signature “bull rider” hat and belt buckle, his lifestyle on the Twin Pines Ranch (a boyhood dream come true), his love of horses, cowboy lore and the heroes of championship rodeo, Western movies, and Louis L’Amour novels, identify him as a Westerner. The son of a lumberjack and a Southerner by birth, his music – rock, country, bluegrass, blues, and gospel – is quintessentially Southern. In fact, even his bent for all things Western is Southern, because his attire, his lifestyle and his interests are historically emblematic of Southern working class solidarity with the “lone cowboy” individualism of the American West. It hasn’t been so much a style of music, but more the values consistently reflected in several styles that has connected Charlie Daniels with millions of fans. For decades, he has steadfastly refused to label his music as anything other than “CDB music,” music that is now sung around the fire at 4-H Club and scout camps, helped elect an American President, and been popularized on a variety of radio formats.
Marshall Tucker Band
One of the major southern rock bands of the 1970s, the group’s style combines rock, country, and jazz and features extended instrumental passages on which leads guitarist Toy Caldwell shone. The band was signed to Capricorn Records and released its debut album, The Marshall Tucker Band, in March 1973. They gained recognition through a tour with The Allman Brothers Band and found significant success during the course of the 1970s, with most of their albums going gold. Their peak came with the million selling album Carolina Dreams and its Top 15 single “Heard It in a Love Song” in 1977.
