Never considered CDB a country band. They are Southern Rock which is now what country music has become. One of th biggest producers in Nashville is Chuck Leavell for Allman Brother fame.

Vote every hour for Charlie — he’s recuperating from pacemaker surgery and we all need to support him!

The house vote was long and thoughtful, although we didn't let the animals vote... Sorry, Alabama wins this one, but perhaps only in this single home in NH. But either one'll do it for us.

Sorry, Alabama wins this one...

Alabama lost me as a fan with "Song of the South", a tribute to the socialist Democrat Franklin Roosevelt and the make-work government program, the TVA:

Daddy was a veteran, a southern Democrat.
They oughta get a rich man to vote like that.

Well somebody told us Wall Street fell
But we were so poor that we couldn't tell.
Cotton was short and the weeds were tall
But Mr. Roosevelt's a gonna save us all.

Well momma got sick and daddy got down.
The county got the farm and they moved to town.
Pappa got a job with the TVA
He bought a washing machine and then a Chevrolet.

And their global warming lyrics...

Well there’s a change taking place way on the mountains
Acid rain is falling on the leaves
And down in Brazil, the fires are burning still
How we gonna breathe without them trees

So let’s leave some blue up above us
Let’s leave some green on the ground
It’s only ours to borrow, let’s save some for tomorrow
Leave it and pass it on down

Thank You. Your vote will be counted once per hour.
The choice is clear.

Alabama is the greatest of all time. 49.01%

No group is better than the Charlie Daniels Band. I love CDB! 50.99%

I’m not all that familiar with the Charlie Daniels Band or Alabama, but after reading the lyrics of “Song of the South,” Alabama disqualifies itself and the CDB wins by default.

I was at Alabama's show on Saturday night. Randy Owen ripped Obama several times and received a loud response from the audience. You need to remember these guys were raised in a dirt poor part of Alabama and everyone was a democrat. The problem is that the Dems they write about in the song were more conservative than our current crop of Republicans.
