Never Look at the Empty Seats, a review

Charlie Daniels has a gift with words, not only in the writing of songs but now with this memoir.  This is a book that can only be written by one who has lived a long and interesting life.  It is a book of stories from his earliest days to the most recent of his 80-plus years.

I think the average person knows Charlie from his song, The Devil Went Down to Georgia.  However, as this memoir will tell you, he has been a performer for decades and has the behind the scenes stories that will keep you turning the pages.

Sometimes the stories are very funny, other times they are sad, they are always honest as he shares his mistakes, his failures, his successes, and his very non-politically correct opinions.  Many of those had me laughing out loud and shaking my head in agreement.

His friends have not all been from the music industry.  For instance, I was very fascinated with his friendship with Louis L'Amour.  What fun it would have been to sit at the table with two very gifted storytellers.  I enjoyed reading this book very much and highly recommend it. 

Never Look at the Empty Seats was provided by the publisher for the sake of review but the opinions are my own.
