LEGEND PASSES ON: Legendary entertainer Charlie Daniels died July 6, 2020, at Summit Medical Center in Hermitage, Tennessee, from a hemmorrhagic stroke. He was 83. Daniels played many shows at Seminole Gaming and Hard Rock venues. One of his last performances in front of a live audience came March 7, 2020, when he performed at Seminole Casino Hotel Immokalee (above). The Charlie Daniels Band’s Charlie-palooza was often held at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa, including in 2013 (below). The performances served as fundraisers for the Hudson, Florida-based The Angelus, a place for severely handicapped residents to call home.
