Charlie Daniels Talks About Bob Dylan Covers

Charlie Daniels released his new Bob Dylan tribute album Off the Grid: Doin' It Dylan on April 1, a record Daniels was excited to tell Dylan himself about.

"He seemed to be happy about the idea, he hadn't heard the album yet," Daniels tells The Boot. "We sent it to him. Very amicable, very talkative, very friendly. I hadn't talked to him in years and it was just like I talked to him last week . . . I wanted him to know that we had done the album and what it meant to me to have been associated with his name over the years. He just - it was just a really nice conversation."

Off the Grid: Doin' It Dylan features 10 Dylan songs re-imagined by Daniels, including "Mr. Tambourine Man," "I Shall Be Released" and "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight."
