The Charlie Daniels Band, with The Artimus Pyle Band, Plays Warner Theatre Tonight
Award-winning musician Charlie Daniels has successfully crossed musical genres in a way few artists have accomplished - from his Dove Award winning gospel albums to his genre-defining Southern rock anthems and his CMA Award-winning country hits. In 1994, for instance, he released his first Christian album, The Door, on Sparrow Records. The album won the Gospel Music Association's Dove Award for Best Country Album and "Two Out of Three" was named video of the year by the Christian Country Music Association. In 1997, Sony Wonder released Charlie's first children's album, By The Light of The Moon, Campfire Songs and Cowboy Tunes. Over the course of his career, Charlie has received numerous accolades, including induction into the Grand Ole Opry and Musicians Hall of Fame. He's been presented the Pioneer Award by the Academy of Country Music and was honored as a BMI Icon in recognition of his songwriting. He has also received a star on the Music City Walk of Fame.
The Artimus Pyle Band is more than just a "tribute" to Lynyrd Skynyrd, but a high energy,true to the music,and
true to the era rock group - One of the few that is on the road today. Artimus Pyle the drummer and a founding member of Lynyrd Skynyrd, pays homage to the music that Ronnie Van Zant brought to life. Artimus Pyle, Brad Durden, Jerry Lyda, Tony Black, and Scott Raines are not only a group of friends and contemporaries but a group with some of the most seasoned musicians around.
