CHARLIE’S HEALTH CHALLENGES

Some of his other songs include “Uneasy Rider” and “In America.” The recent stroke was not the first one for the country musician as he’d suffered a mild one in 2010.

In 2013, Daniels was fitted with a pacemaker and in 2001 he managed to overcome prostate cancer. The legendary star was a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

QUAID’S MARRIAGE

Quaid is also a married man as he recently tied the knot with a much younger woman. The actor married his new wife, Laura Savoie, 27, on June 2, 2020, at a Santa Barbara seaside resort.

THE ORIGINAL WEDDING PLAN

Before eloping, the couple had planned on an April wedding in Hawaii. They intended on hosting a second reception in Nashville for their friends and family.

Unfortunately, the pair had to change their plans due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease and its safety guidelines.
