To say Charlie Daniels is a Bob Dylan fan is to say the famous country singer plays an OK fiddle. It's an understatement. Daniels was in Dylan's band to record three albums in the late '60s and early '70s, and has since appreciated his music, even if he didn't necessarily always know what the folk-rocker was talking about.
Songs being recorded by multiple artists is not new. "Ol' Red" was recorded by George Jones and Kenny Rogers before Blake Shelton put his spin on it and made it a hit. "I Do (Cherish You)" was a hit for Mark Wills on the country chart and 98 Degrees on the Top 40 charts. Now we have three different versions of "Wagon Wheel" floating around.
