Nickelback have released a cover of The Charlie Daniels Band‘s “The Devil Went Down To Georgia.“ The track features Dave Martone and you can find an animated video for it below:
Chad Kroeger commented:
“Charlie Daniels seamlessly fused country, southern rock, Western swing, blues and bluegrass into a sound and style all his own. More importantly, his ability to tell compelling and relatable stories through his songwriting has stuck with me to this day. None more so than ‘The Devil Went Down To Georgia‘.
I was only five years old when that song came out and it remains one of my all-time favourites. A few years ago, we recorded a rough take during a studio session with our good friend Dave Martone. It was a fun song to tackle and brought back so many good memories for us all. When Charlie passed last month, the world lost a music icon. I hope our version will bring half as much joy as his did for me and so many others.”
This news comes after Korn and Yelawolf recently released their own cover of “The Devil Went Down To Georgia.”
