Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie Daniels has died Monday morning (July 6 - US Time) at 83 after suffering a hemorrhagic stroke.

The news of the death was delivered through his publicist and comes after many years of heart problems. 

"The Devil Went Down to Georgia" was the Charlie Daniels Band's most well-known song, although "Long Haired Country Boy" and "The Legend of Wooley Swamp" were also well-known. The band had three Top 10 hits on Billboard's all-genre Hot 100, including "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" at No. 1 in 1979. Daniels notched the same number on the Hot Country Songs chart as well, with "Simple Man" and "Drinkin' My Baby Good-Bye" among his other Top 10 hits.

Daniels became a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016. He was also a member of the Grand Ole Opry. The North Carolina native is survived by wife Hazel and son Charlie Daniels, Jr.
