Charlie Daniels: “We’re coming to rock ‘em” in Charlotte

| September 20, 2011

If all the truckers got together — and I saw this happen in the 1970s — if they decided they weren’t going to run, this country would shut down in 7-8 days. I know most truckers just won’t do that, because they’re proud Americans. But all the same more people need to realize the importance, in all aspects, of what is hauled in those trucks, and concessions to truckers should be made.

What trucks do you run in your touring operation now?
Just a box truck now, driven by Jimmy Potts and his son Chris. They’ve been with us a pretty good little while, several years. Now, with this bunch that could mean up to 41 years.

How long have your current band members been with you?
We’re going on 41 years as a band. One’s been with me that whole time, one for 37, another for 22. Some of the road crew have been with me that whole time.

What can drivers attending the Charlotte show expect?
We’re going to entertain them. That’s what we do. We will see that that they have a good time. I owe them that. That’s exactly what we’re going to do. We’re coming to rock ’em.

Any new material?
We’ll have some you haven’t heard before, yes. Tell all the drivers to come have a good time with us.
