This awesome raglan tee is for the Charles Daniels Band and it commemorates the group's 1979 to 1980 tour. The front includes a portrait of the band while the back features a spoof of the iconic Jack Daniels whiskey label, listing the details of the tour. Charlie Daniels was a southern rock, country, and bluegrass musician who was arguably best known for his hit song "Devil Went Down to Georgia". The song debuted on the album Million Mile Reflections, which was released the same year as the tour from this shirt.
Daniels' career began in the early 60s when he worked as a Nashville session musician. He didn't record his first solo album until 1971 and his first hit came in 1973 with the song "Uneasy Rider", which reached the number nine spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
"Devil Went Down to Georgia" is the song that helped Daniels to crossover from the world of country and bluegrass into rock and roll, as the song became a major hit on most rock radio stations. This was especially thanks to its inclusion in the movie Urban Cowboy, and Daniels even made an on screen appearance in the film. The song also won Daniels the Grammy for Best Country Vocal Performance.
The tag says large but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult medium. There are light spots on the front, see pics.
