Legendary act, The Charlie Daniels Band, is releasing a pair of digital singles, “Iraq Blues” and “(What This World Needs Is) A Few More Rednecks 2010,” on July 4 through Blue Hat Records/E1 Entertainment.

The two tracks are featured on the CDB’s forthcoming August 10 release, a patriotic compilation titled Land That I Love.  “Iraq Blues” was written during CDB tours to Iraq, and “(What This World Needs Is) A Few More Rednecks 2010” is an updated version of a Daniels classic.  Both songs are newly recorded studio versions, and the 2010 update of “(What This World Needs Is) A Few More Rednecks 2010” also includes a brand new verse.  The singles will be available at all major online retailers.

“I wrote ‘Iraq Blues’ on three separate trips to entertain the troops over there in Iraq.  It’s about the troops and for the troops,” says Daniels.  “’(What This World Needs Is) A Few More Rednecks 2010’ is an updated version of a song I recorded several years ago.  The new lyrics reflect life in America in the 21st century.”

The Charlie Daniels Band maintains a busy tour schedule through the end of 2010.  For more information and updated tour dates, visit www.CharlieDaniels.com.

Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
