Charlie Daniels Receives a Life Sized Statue in Massachusetts



Fiddle champion Charlie Daniels was presented with a life-sized statue of himself at the Indian Ranch concert venue in Webster Massachusetts over Labor Day weekend. 

Hand-carved by local artist Glenn Sherman, the six foot statue  depicts Daniels' signature Western belt buckle, his white cowboy hat and even his famous fiddling technique.

Daniels and his band were playing at Indian Ranch for a record twenty-one times when the statue was presented to him by the Robert family, owners of the venue.  Concert organizers wanted to thank Charlie for "two decades of great shows," according to Suzette Raun, president of Indian Ranch.
