Another blowout concert by Charlie Daniels and Friends to benefit Christmas4Kids

Couple of extra surprises set during performance

Special to The Wilson Post

The Charlie Daniels and Friends Concert, to benefit Christmas4Kids, is set to shake the hallowed walls of the Ryman on Monday, Nov. 23. 

Every year, Charlie Daniels, along with his own amazing talents, brings to the stage a variety of gifted and exciting entertainers; and of course, this year is no exception with the booking of Phil Vassar, Wilson County’s Gretchen Wilson and Chris Young.  But, this year, Charlie had a few surprises up his sleeve – namely The Grascals and Brad Arnold of the group 3 Doors Down.
