Charlie Daniels Lends His Time, Talents to Help TWRA in Promoting Outdoors Activities

NASHVILLE --Award-winning musician and entertainer Charlie Daniels has donated his time and talents to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency by providing a series of announcements.

Charlie recently spent the day with the TWRA video production crew. He graciously agreed to help promote topics such as boating safety, the importance of taking your kids outdoors to hunt and fish, and the benefits of purchasing licenses to support all wildlife in Tennessee.

The spots have begun airing on Nashville television stations Fox 17 and WUXP 30 during Southeastern Conference basketball telecasts. The audio will be used to create radio Public Service Announcements that will be aired statewide. Other outlets will air spots as the year progresses.

Charlie was recruited by Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission member James Stroud. He has worked with Charlie as his record producer and has remained a long-time friend. 

“We are thrilled to have Charlie Daniels help promote the fabulous wildlife and fishing opportunities we have here in our state,” according to Don King, TWRA Chief of Information and Education. “I couldn’t have said it any better than when Charlie ad-libbed in one of the TV spots, “’We live in Tennessee, It don’t get any better than this.’” 

Charlie has been active in music since the 1950s and nationally known for his contributions to county and southern rock music. He celebrated his fifth anniversary of induction into the Grand Ole Opry in January.
