Never Look at the Empty Seats By Charlie Daniels Review @CharlieDaniels
The Incredible Story of a Country Music Legend
Few artists have left a more indelible mark on America’s musical landscape than Charlie Daniels.
Readers will experience a soft, personal side of Charlie Daniels that has never before been documented. In his own words, he presents the path from his post-depression childhood to performing for millions as one of the most successful country acts of all time and what he has learned along the way. The book also includes insights into the many musicians that orbited Charlie’s world, including Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Tammy Wynette and many more.
Charlie was officially inducted into The Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016, shortly before his 80th birthday. He now shares the inside stories, reflections, and rare personal photographs from his earliest days in the 1940s to his self-taught guitar and fiddle playing high school days of the fifties through his rise to music stardom in the seventies, eighties and beyond.
Charlie Daniels presents a life lesson for all of us regardless of profession:
“Walk on stage with a positive attitude. Your troubles are your own and are not included in the ticket price. Some nights you have more to give than others, but put it all out there every show. You're concerned with the people who showed up, not the ones who didn't. So give them a show and…Never look at the empty seats!”
I recevied a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- I wanted to share my gratitude and love to this author for getting me through some tougher times. A man that did not just create a song, he created a feeling. It is epic when you can share music of your times with your children and pass a feeling over. I was so interested in this memoir and surprised at everything this man had to go through. It is a must read if you like Charlie Daniels and would enjoy reading more about him.
