Country music star Carrie Underwood took to her Instagram page to pay tribute to the late country music legend, Charlie Daniels. The singer died yesterday, July 6, after suffering a stroke.


A gloom fell over the American music industry yesterday, July 6, when news started making the rounds that veteran singer Charlie Daniels had passed on.

Following the death of the famous singer, several celebrities flooded social media with tributes in honor of the talented fiddler and guitarist.

Leading the line of tributes was country music star Carrie Underwood, who had a loving relationship with Daniels. She took to Instagram to share a series of pictures of her and the famous singer while penning down a sweet message in his honor.

In one of the photos, Underwood could be seen with Daniels on stage as they thrilled the audience. The second photo was a more personal shot and featured Underwood and the legendary singer locked in a conversation. The beautiful singer shared the pictures alongside the caption:

"I’m sad for the world and for his family...but I’m smiling a little because the angel band in Heaven just got themselves one heck of a fiddle player..."


On Monday, July 6, Daniels' publicist revealed that the iconic multi-instrumentalist died at the age of 83, at the Summit Medical Center in Nashville, after suffering a hemorrhagic stroke.

Daniels enjoyed a successful career spanning nearly sixty years and is best known for his hit song, "The Devil Went Down to Georgia." The song became synonymous with the Charlie Daniels Band and is always featured as a finale in all their performances.

In 2016, Charlie Daniels was named into the Country Music Hall of Fame.


Following the death of the famous singer, many celebrities took to their social media accounts to pen down sweet tributes to the country music Hall of Famer.

Some celebrities who have reacted to his death include fellow country music stars Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, and many others.


Over the years, Daniels formed close friendships with fellow country music stars that gave rise to fantastic collaborations, which will remain evidence of his undeniable ability.

In 2010, the then 73-year-old jumped on the stage to outperform the likes of Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, and John Fogerty in a surprise opening to the ACM Awards.

The much younger singers struggled to keep up with the electrifying showmanship of Daniels who displayed his prowess on a fiddle.

In 2016, Charlie Daniels was named into the Country Music Hall of Fame, and he also won a Grammy award in 1979 for his hit song, "The Devil Went Down to Georgia."
