Charlie Daniels has been singing country music for as long as we can remember. His decorated career began in 1964 when he co-wrote the Elvis Presley song "It Hurts Me" and worked as a session musician in Nashville.
He can be heard playing electric bass on three Bob Dylan albums in 1969 and 1970, and several Leonard Cohen recordings. He also worked as a producer and worked on folk rock band The Youngbloods' album Elephant Mountain.
He finally released his first solo project in 1971, a self-titled album, and released a new album just about every year for the next five decades. In the 70s, he even played fiddle on many of The Marshall Tucker Band's albums.
He and his band, the Charlie Daniels Band, have earned a Grammy and well-deserved inductions into the Grand Ole Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame. Throughout his 60 year career, Daniels has lived a life aspiring musicians can only dream of, and what better way to share his experiences with the world than write a memoir.
Titled Never Look Back at the Empty Seats, Daniels' made the exciting announcement during a Facebook Live session on Tuesday (March 14). It will be released on October 24, 2017 and will include "personal anecdotes and insider history," according to Rolling Stone.

The book's website explains the interesting title saying, "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!"
