Watch Brantley Gilbert Pay Tribute to Charlie Daniels by Covering “Long Haired Country Boy”

Brantley Gilbert paid tribute to Charlie Daniels by covering “Long Haired Country Boy” in a video posted on YouTube.

Charlie died on July 6 after suffering a stroke in his Tennessee home.

Penned by Charlie, “Long Haired Country Boy” became a Top 30 hit for the Charlie Daniels Band in 1980. Along with “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” and “Simple Man,” “Long Haired Country Boy” is one of Charlie’s most beloved songs.

“Charlie Daniels is a legend of country music,” said Brantley in a statement accompanying the YouTube video. “[I] put together this cover with Jesse Franklin to honor the man he was and the music he made. Both will inspire me forever. RIP Charlie Daniels.”
