"It goes without saying that itâ€™s been a rough year for my mom and I, our CDB family and dadâ€™s fans,â€ť says Danielsâ€™ son, Charlie Daniels Jr. â€śBut his music will live on forever, and weâ€™re happy that this Duets collection will add to his legacy."

The album includes several of Daniels' biggest songs such as â€śLong Haired Country Boyâ€ť (w/ Brooks & Dunn, as well as an additional version w/ Hal Ketchum and John Berry), â€śThe Southâ€™s Gonna Do It (Again)â€ť (w/ Keith Urban on guitar), â€śDrinkinâ€™ My Baby Goodbyeâ€ť (w/ Montgomery Gentry), and â€śWacoâ€ť (w/ Garth Brooks singing harmony), as well as classic tunes like â€śJacksonâ€ť (w/ Gretchen Wilson), â€śLet It Be Meâ€ť (w/ Brenda Lee), and â€śThe Night They Drove Old Dixie Downâ€ť (w/ Vince Gill).
â€śThe process of putting this project together was a wonderful time of reflection and it became an overwhelming reminder of how great these tracks are,â€ť explains Blue Hat Records president and Daniels' longtime manager David Corlew. â€śThe best of the best joined Charlie in sharing musical styles and great songs. Thanks to all who participated in honoring Charlie."
