Charlie Daniels, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, received military honors during a memorial service in Tennessee on Wednesday.

The “Devil Went Down to Georgia” crooner died on Monday after a stroke at the age of 83.

Given Daniels’ storied history paying it forward to present and past members of our nation’s armed forces, the Grammy-winner was sent out in style when he was honored with a performance from longtime pal and fellow country peer Trace Adkins.

“I’ve known a lot of good men in my life, I still know a lot of good men but when you talk about great men the list is short,” Adkins, 58, tweeted on Thursday. “But Charlie Daniels was on that list for me.”

Daniels, a native of Wilmington, N.C., started out as a session musician, playing on Bob Dylan’s “Nashville Skyline” album. Beginning in the early 1970s, his five-piece band toured extensively, sometimes doing 250 shows a year. During his career, Daniels performed at the White House, the Super Bowl, throughout Europe and often for troops in the Middle East.
