Country Music Hall of Fame member Charlie Daniels has teamed with award-winning musicians James Stroud (Bob Seger, Paul Simon), Billy Crain (Allman Brothers, ZZ Top) and Charlie Hayward (CDB, Allman Brothers) for a new album, Beau Weevils: Songs in the Key of E.
The 10-track offering features lead vocals, guitar and fiddle from Charlie, with Stroud on drums, Crain on guitar and Hayward on bass. Charlie wrote or co-wrote all 10 tracks on the new album, which will drop on Oct. 26.
“Beau Weevils: Songs in the Key of E is the culmination of a long held desire of James Stroud and myself to do a project together,” says Charlie. “We had worked together, with James in the capacity of producer, which had resulted in some of our most successful albums for The Charlie Daniels Band, but James is one of the finest and most soulful drummers in the business and I figured we could get together, musician to musician, and come up with something special. We just needed a vehicle in the form of songs that would fit the bill.”
The new album is available for pre-order now.
