Charlie Daniels stopped by Fox & Friends to celebrate the 40th anniversary of his hit song, “The Devil Went Down To Georgia.”

He talked about his non-profit organization that benefits veterans, the next generation’s poor understanding of American history, how his career got started, and finally, today’s modern country sound.

“Country music has changed Charlie, are you ok with it? We have the Florida Georgia Lines, what don’t you like about the new country?”

Charlie answered with a resounding “no” and went on to explain why he isn’t a fan of today’s country music.

“From my point of view, I can’t tell one song from the other, I can’t tell one song from the other. I literally can’t you know? And I don’t mean it in a critical sort of way because I’m a living life kind of guy, we do our thing and let everybody do their thing.”

Check out the full interview.
