"We celebrate the life of Charlie Daniels, even as we mourn his passing, and reflect fondly upon his impeccable character and indelible legacy as one of the greatest and most enduring country music artists of his generation," the resolution states. "We express our sympathy and offer our condolences to the family of Mr. Daniels."
Daniels passed away at age 83 from a hemorrhagic stroke on July 6.
Last month, President Trump sent a condolence letter to Daniels' wife Hazel.
"Charlie will forever be remembered as a true American patriot, and his contributions to country music will be celebrated for generations," the letter read. "He inspired many Americans with his unyielding support of our brave men and women in uniform. Your husband reminded us that we must honor those who have sacrificed so much to defend our freedoms. Our great Nation depends on artists like Charlie who promote love of country. He will be greatly missed."
Charlie Daniels' Volunteer Jam, a star-studded country and rock concert which dates back to 1974, returns in 2021 as a tribute to the event's late founder. Alabama, Ricky Skaggs, CeCe Winans, Old Crow Medicine Show and Junior Brown are among the artists set to perform on Feb. 22, 2021.
