At Charlie’s Place, a new development in Mount Juliet, there is a new plaque honoring the country music artist who called Wilson County home.

This plaque is located on what used to be the old red brick building, one of the longest-standing buildings in Mt. Juliet, that is now referred to as Charlie’s Place.

On the bronze plaque, it states, “Only two things protect America. The grace of the Almighty God and the United States Military.”

The owner of the property Judd Sellars also commissioned a mural of Charlie Daniels, which is next to the plaque.

Country Music Hall of Fame, Grand Ole Opry member and southern rock legend Charlie Daniels died in 2020 at the age of 83. He was known as an outspoken patriot, beloved mentor, and a true road warrior. Daniels also supported the military, underprivileged children, and others in need. The Charlie Daniels Band has long populated radio with memorable hits such as the signature song, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.”
