Seven of the first eight albums by this southern rock band went gold, and two of them platinum. To date they have issued more than 30 albums (including Greatest Hits and Anthology sets). The band got their break when the opened for Wet Willie. Overnight they went from packed-out clubs to packed-out coliseums. Their debut LP sold 500,000 copies and went gold. Charlie Daniels has played fiddle on several of their songs. Two of the founding brothers in the band died tragically. Another founding member dies of cancer two years ago. The band still performs more than 100 shows a year.
