The Louisville Pops Orchestra will be performing with the celebrated Charlie Daniels Band, part of the BB&T Legends Series.  Under the direction of Bob Bernhardt, Principle Pops Conductor, the Louisville Pops Orchestra will team up with this Grammy and CMA award-winning band on Saturday, October 13th at The Louisville Palace Theatre.  Hear popular knee slapping and toe-tapping songs such as “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” and “Drinkin’ My Baby Goodbye” performed live with a full orchestra!  Where else will you hear country music glitz and glam combined with the sophistication of the Louisville Pops Orchestra?

Celebrating his 26th anniversary with the Louisville Orchestra, Principal Pops Conductor Bob Bernhardt continues to bring his unique combination of easy style, infectious enthusiasm and wonderful musicianship to the city and orchestra he loves.  In 1981, he accepted the post of Assistant Conductor and has worked with the Louisville Orchestra in every season since.  Bernhardt will be leading the orchestra in selections by John Williams as well as the timeless classic “Georgia on my Mind” during the first half of this not to be missed performance!

Like the State of Texas, Charlie Daniels is partly Western and partly Southern.   His resume includes recording sessions with artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Flatt & Scruggs, Pete Seeger, Mark O'Conner, Leonard Cohen, Ringo Starr and Johnny Cash. His songs have been documented by ABC Newsmagazine 20/20. In 1985, he published a collection of short stories, The Devil Went Down to Georgia, peopled with the same kind of characters and tall tales as his songs. With an unerring instinct for the universal ties that bind people together and an equal abhorrence for the intolerance and fear that do the opposite, Charlie Daniels has kept the specifics of his cultural heritage as the soul of the CDB music that has impacted the lives of everyday people everywhere.
