Humbling to think that even the greatest musical legends have their own personal icons – as proven with the much anticipated new release by CHARLIE DANIELS and The CDB — Off The Grid—Doin’ It Dylan. The project is produced by Charlie Daniels and Casey Wood. Little could Charlie Daniels have imagined in the late ‘60’s as a young studio musician answering a call from producer Bob Johnston to add his creativity on guitar to three of Dylan’s Nashville produced projects (Nashville SkylineSelf Portrait, and New Morning,) that he was on the first steps of the journey to his own destination as a musical icon. His first new album project release since 2007, Off The Grid is Dylan the Daniels way and the result is sheer musical genius.
 
“Whatever it was Bob Dylan meant by his lyrics, they grabbed the attention of the world and changed the face of music forever,” notes Charlie. “He inspired musicians to knock down the restrictive, bubble gum, three minute a side, Tin Pan Alley world that set the parameters of popular music and turn their creative minds loose in a thousand new directions.”
 
Charlie Daniels has managed to do just that. During his 50 plus years of creating his own new definitions of music, he has scored hits on rock, country, pop and Christian charts. Skilled on guitar, fiddle, and mandolin, his contributions to country and southern rock are legendary on the path of platinum that’s carried him to virtually every music industry award and accolade presented across multi-genres. Off The Grid is yet another example of the seemingly endless reservoirs of musical creativity that the now 77 year young Daniels can effortlessly draw upon.
