Charlie Daniels Band Performing for Monday Night Football

Filed under: The Country Scoop |

After letting go of Hank Williams Jr., ESPN will use a different artist before each Monday Night Football game this year, starting with…The Charlie Daniels Band!!

“The Devil Went Down to Georgia” will be the song preformed before the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos take the field on Monday, September 17. But it is a special version of the song, mentioning quarterbacks Matt Ryan and Peyton Manning.

“I’ve been watching ‘Monday Night Football’ since it started,” Charlie said. “To be a part of it makes me feel proud. I had to watch the lyrics real close because I’ve done those same ‘Devil Went Down to Georgia’ lyrics for 33 years!”

Make sure you don’t miss Monday’s game!
