Grammy winning music icon Charlie Daniels released a new album today titled Memories, Memoirs and Miles - Songs of a Lifetime available exclusively at Walmart. The album is the musical companion to his forthcoming memoir 'Never Look At The Empty Seats' which will be available everywhere books are sold on October 24.

With a career spanning nearly 60 years and exceeding 20 million in sales worldwide Charlie
Daniels is the quintessential Southerner with a healthy dose of Wild West Cowboy.
For decades, he has connected with his millions of fans in the varying genres of music that reflect his steadfast refusal to label his music as anything other than the "Charlie Daniels Band" sound — 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. Having celebrated multiple Grammy Awards, CMA Awards, ACM Awards, BMI Awards, GMA Dove Awards, CCMA Awards, his list of accolades is broad; the latest being the newest inductee to the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Several of his albums have been RIAA Certified Multi-Platinum® and he has achieved a platinum-selling single in his iconic fiddle-ridden hit, "Devil Went Down To Georgia." An outspoken American Patriot and strong supporter of the U.S. Military, Daniels' talked-about Volunteer Jam concerts are world-famous musical extravaganzas featuring artists like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ted Nugent, Trace Adkins, Alabama and others, all on one stage for one purpose – to raise funds for our U.S. Military. Daniels 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam in 2016 raised funds for The Journey Home Project, a non-profit veterans assistance organization which he co-founded.
