The Charlie Daniels Band is looking back on a special NASCAR race when driver Joe Nemechek honored the late country music icon on his No. 33 car. Nemechek’s customized car featured Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie Daniels’ face and band logo on the hood of his vehicle.
On Friday, his team shared the snap with the caption: “ON THIS DAY in 2000, @frontrowjoe87 finished third at the Winston 500 @nascar race at Talladega driving a car with The Charlie Daniels Band logo and a picture of Charlie playing fiddle on the hood of his #33 Oakwood Homes car. – TeamCDB/BW.”
After posting shots of the car, over a thousand of the band’s fans showered the throwback photo with likes. This is one of several recent pictures in the last few days the band shared that their fans have loved.
Also this week, the band looked back on a special moment for the legendary fiddler in 2016, his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame. “ON THIS DAY in 2016, @therandytravis, Charlie and legendary producer, Fred Foster, were formally inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum with the HOF’s Medallion Ceremony. – TeamCDB/BW,” the band captioned the post.
Charlie Daniels Band Visits Corn Maze Tribute
Earlier this month, the Daniels’ estate offered a look at another amazing tribute to the “Long Haired Country Boy” singer. The group visited a corn maze designed in Daniels’ honor. They later shared photos of the incredible maze featured at Lyon Family Farms in Taft, TN on social media.
The maze’s design shows Daniels wearing his signature cowboy hat while holding a fiddle.
