His Fiddle Really Was Gold This Day in Country Music – August 21st (Video)

Here is a video of Charlie Daniels performing that song on the Grand Ole Opry stage the day he was inducted.

1938 – Kenny Rogers born in St. Joseph’s Infirmary in Houston. His pop-laced series of ballads and story songs in the 1970s and ’80s make him one of country’s best all-time sellers, with more than 25 gold albums. He expands his reach with a lengthy acting career.
