Post Charlie Daniel Suffers Minor Stroke
DURANGO, Colo. (AP) -- Fiddler-guitarist Charlie Daniels said he
suffered a mild stroke while snowmobiling in Colorado and has some
stiffness and numbness in his left hand and arm.
Daniels, 73, suffered the stroke Friday just outside Durango,
about 230 miles southwest of Denver. He was treated at a local
hospital then airlifted to a Denver hospital, where he was released
on Sunday.
In a posting on his Web site Wednesday, Daniels said he was
starting physical therapy. He didn't say whether his playing had
been affected but wrote, "I'm doing fine."
Another statement on the Web site says he doesn't plan to cancel
any concerts. His next appearance is scheduled for Feb. 27 in Fort
Pierce, Fla.
Daniels lives in Mount Juliet, Tenn., but has a home in the
Durango area where he takes an extended vacation every year around
Christmas, his spokeswoman Paula Szeigis said.
Szeigis said Daniels has returned to the Durango home.
In his posting, Daniels said he was snowmobiling with friends
when he noticed his left hand getting numb but thought it was
because he had been gripping the handlebars for so long.
"But then I felt the left side of my mouth starting growing
numb and my left foot started getting hard to control and I knew
something was happening to me. I knew I'd better get back down the
mountain and get some help," he wrote.
He said tests showed the stroke was caused by a blood clot in
his brain.
"The fingerprints of God were all over my experience," Daniels
wrote, because he wasn't far from the Durango hospital, which had
only recently begun stocking the drug used to break up the clot. A
plane was immediately available to take him to Denver.
Daniels is best known for his 1979 hit "The Devil Went Down to
Georgia." The Charlie Daniels Band was awarded a Grammy for best
country vocal for the song.
He currently appears in a television ad for Geico Insurance,
playing a scorching fiddle riff in an upscale restaurant before
handing the fiddle to a man in a tuxedo and saying, "That's how
you do it, son."

I lived about 10 miles from his house in Mt. Juliet, TN back in the late eighties. We always saw him at the Lebanon TN fairgrounds riding horses and roping calves. He is a real cowboy and a true southern gentleman. I'm glad he is ok and hope he makes a full recovery soon!
