Country Music Legend Who Played Hope Twice Passes

By Staff, 07/10/20 5:22 PM

Grand Old Opry Star and Country Music Hall of Fame member Charlie Daniels recently passed away.  He is remembered fondly for his two concerts in Hope.  Daniels played a concert at the Hope Watermelon Festival in 1990.  He was the first big-name entertainer to play the festival.  He returned several years ago to perform a well-received show at Hempstead Hall.  Those who worked with Daniels in Hope were complimentary of him and pronounced him a gentleman.  Our thanks to Terri Perkins who snapped this photo of Daniels onstage at Hempstead Hall for sharing.
