Dolly Parton is “heartbroken” over the loss of her “dear friend” Charlie Daniels.

On Monday, (July 6, 2020) news broke that country music legend Charlie Daniels had passed away at the age of 83 from a hemorrhagic stroke.

“Country music and southern rock legend Charlie Daniels has passed,” read a press release about Daniels’ death. “The Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member died this morning [July 6] at Summit Medical Center in Hermitage, Tennessee.” The press release stated.


Dolly Parton took to social media later on that day to share her feelings on the passing of her dear friend, Charlie saying:

“Well, the devil went down to Georgia, but Charlie went straight to heaven. My heart, like many millions of others, is broken today to find out that we’ve lost our dear friend Charlie Daniels. It was such a shock. He was one of the great people in the business and one of the greatest entertainers ever. He will live on in our hearts. Rest in peace, Charlie. – Dolly”


Dolly and Charlie not only shared the stage but shared a song called “Daddy’s Old Fiddle” that was a part of Charlie’s 2007 album, Deuces, that featured duets with some of country music’s finest artists. The album included artists like Travis Tritt, Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, and Marty Stuart, just to name a few. The album is loaded with timeless duets accompanied by the fiddlin’ country legend himself, Charlie Daniels.
