Charlie Daniels with special guest, Tracy Lawrence, perform at Cheyenne Frontier Days 2018

Cheyenne Frontier Nights weather did not disappoint again this year.  The rain made its annual appearance before Charlie Daniels took to the stage and stayed for most of the  night’s show.   The crowd did not let the weather dampen their spirits.

Tracy Lawrence came out and the crowd was pumped from the beginning.  He sang all of his greatest hits including “Texas Tornado”, “Alibis”, “Sticks and Stones” and “Time Marches On”.  The excitement of the crowd could be felt as they sang along with him.

The 81 year old legend, Charlie Daniels, then took to the stage.  The crowd did not wain in their excitement.  He sang most of his greatest hits including, “Long Haired Country Boy”, “Simple Man” and “Legend of Wooley Swamp”.  He dedicated his song “In America” to our military and first responders.  He had his band take over with a rocking instrumental where the drummer had a long solo before he closed out the show with everyone’s favorite “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”,  I would have to say, this 81 year old still has the energy to put on one great show.
