Charlie Daniels Re-Records Devil for Monday Night Football

Country music icon The Charlie Daniels Band have re-recorded a special version of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” for Monday Night Football. The opening song will make its debut next week when the Atlanta Falcons host the Denver Broncos. “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” was originally a 1979 hit for the group, and quickly became one of the best known songs all-genres.

In an interview with ESPN, Charlie shares:

“I had to watch the lyrics real close because I’ve done those same ‘Devil Went Down To Georgia’ lyrics for 33 years.”

Each week will feature a brand new opening song for Monday Night Football. What other country stars would you like to see sing the theme one week?
