A security guard at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry checked my name and ID against the guest list.
With a nod, he directed me backstage to one of the eighteen, uniquely themed dressing rooms to meet country legend, Charlie Daniels. As I approached, I heard Charlie’s unmistakable deep baritone voice above the laughter spilling out into the hallway. Reaching the door, I found that the room was packed.
The Country Music Hall of Famer, standing at the far side, was holding court with fans, family, and friends before his Opry appearance that evening.
