Daniels recovering from stroke


Daniels lives near Gladeville, but has a home in the Durango area where he takes an extended vacation every year around Christmas. He was snowmobiling with his wife and friends when he suffered the stroke. He's now back at his Durango-area home, Szeigis said.

A statement on Daniels' Web site says he doesn't plan to cancel any concerts. His next appearance is scheduled for Feb. 27 in Fort Pierce, Fla.

Daniels is best known for his 1979 hit "The Devil Went Down to Georgia." The Charlie Daniels Band was awarded a Grammy for best country vocal for the song.

Well-known for his humanitarian efforts, a public park in Mt. Juliet is named in his honor.
