One thing you can anticipate on Daniels album Night Hawk is plenty of fiddle. Which happens to be the first instrument heard on track one, “Big Ball’s in Cowtown.” Need I remind you The Charlie Daniels Band owns the #1 fiddle song in country music – “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.” Country music needs more fiddle and you’re going to get plenty on this album.
Influenced by cowboy stories, this album takes you on a musical journey. The lyrics are deep and each song tells a story. Daniels is a songwriting genius. He will have you yelling “Yippie Ki Yea” while “Running with the Crowd” down the “Old Chisolm Trail” right before “Nighthawk”, “Billy the Kid”, and “The (Ghost) Riders in the Sky” make you “Stay All Night.” This album tells stories about a cowboys way of life. The hard working cowboys, rather than the outlaw kind.
