Speaking directly to the late star, Bryan thanked him for his “contributions on and off the stage.” He concluded his post by asking God to bless Daniels.

The country music star also shared a throwback photo of himself singing on stage with Daniels. The Country Music Hall of Fame inductee died from a stroke at the age of 83.



Chris Young also honored the late star via his Instagram account. Young confessed that he was “Absolutely gutted” by Daniels’ passing.

He added: “…what a life lived, and what an incredible human being. He will be sorely missed.” Young also included an image that featured the late singer.



Other people who paid tribute and mourned "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" singer’s death included Meghan McCain from “The View,” and fellow singers Luke Combs, Jason Aldean, Travis Tritt, and Brad Paisley.



Daniels started his musical career by playing bluegrass music with his band, The Misty Mountain Boys. In 1967, he moved to Nashville where he began making a name for himself.



In 1970, Daniels thrilled his fans when he recorded a self-titled solo album for Capitol Records. He was well-known as a songwriter, a session musician, and a producer.


The legendary star also co-wrote the song, “It Hurts Me,” which was recorded by another icon, Elvis Presley. The artist’s passing was confirmed by his publicist, Don Murry Grubbs.

He is survived by his wife, Hazel, and son Charlie Daniels Jr.
