WATCH: Charlie Daniels’ New Lyric Video, ‘Can’t Beat The Damned Machine’
2016 was a landmark year for Charlie Daniels. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, was honored with his own exhibit there, Charlie Daniels: Million Mile Reflections, celebrated his 80th birthday, hosted the largest Volunteer Jam in CDB history with the Charlie Daniels 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, and released his latest album, a collection of cowboy songs titled Night Hawk.
2017 shows no signs of slowing down for Charlie as the CDB celebrates it’s 45th Anniversary (1972-2017), will release his autobiography, Never Look at the Empty Seats on October 23rd, another year of over 100 tour dates and now Charlie releases his very first official lyric video, “Can’t Beat the Damned Ole Machine,” from the Night Hawk album.
The song was written by Greg Wohlgemuth and longtime CDB keyboard player, Taz DiGregorio, who passed away in 2011. The song tells the story of an aging cowboy coming to grips with the reality of becoming obsolete in an increasingly mechanical world.
