MORE ABOUT THE BAND: For almost a half of a century, Grammy® Award winner and Grand Ole Opry inductee Charlie Daniels and his band have been fusing hardcore country with hard-edged Southern rock, boogie and blues.

  1. My daughter Jennifer. She is a true blessing. She had viral encephalitis when she was nine. Although the doctors gave us little hope of her survival, she did. She is now a LIfeStyle resident, lives on her own with her husband Ian, and works in Food Services at Washington Regional. Although the brain injury has taken away a lot, she is always happy and willing to help others. She doesn’t see her lifestyles friends as “different” she sees only friends who might need a little more time and patience.
