Nickelback surprised us this morning with an animated music video for the cover of The Charlie Daniels Band classic “The Devil Went Down To Georgia.” The track is to honor Charlie Daniels, who passed away last month.
Frontman Chad Kroeger comments:
“Charlie Daniels seamlessly fused country, southern rock, Western swing, blues and bluegrass into a sound and style all his own. More importantly, his ability to tell compelling and relatable stories through his songwriting has stuck with me to this day. None more so than ‘The Devil Went Down to Georgia’. I was only five years old when that song came out and it remains one of my all-time favourites. A few years ago, we recorded a rough take during a studio session with our good friend Dave Martone. It was a fun song to tackle and brought back so many good memories for us all. When Charlie passed last month, the world lost a music icon. I hope our version will bring half as much joy as his did for me and so many others.”
