It’s hard to believe that throughout its 40-plus-year history, the Charlie Daniels Band has never released an acoustic album. Charlie Daniels realized this recently when the band provided music for a TV show called Hell on Wheels.

“We were asked to do some music for it, and we had to use instruments that were around in the 1800s, which precluded anything electric,” Daniels told Radio.com. “Everything had to be acoustical. We were so pleasantly surprised by the outcome that we decided to do an album.”

A fan of Bob Dylan, Daniels was a session player on several of Dylan’s albums including Nashville Skyline, Self Portrait and New Morning. While he had covered a few of Dylan’s songs in the past, he didn’t decide to record an album of Dylan songs until now.
