Have you been feeling the blues as we stay at home during the coronavirus pandemic? Well, Charlie Daniels has the cure for you.
Charlie and The Beau Weevils, consisting of Daniels, James Stroud, Billy Crain and Charlie Hayward, have released an entertaining quarantine version of “Geechi Geechi Ya Ya Blues,” and their giving One Country readers a first look.
Charlie and The Beau Weevils first released the song in 2018, but this time, the 83-year-old has enlisted the help of some of his famous friends to join in on the fun.

Those friends include ALABAMA’s Randy Owen, The Oak Ridge Boys, Ray Stevens, Larry Gatlin, Crystal Gayle, Rhonda Vincent, Lorrie Morgan, Collin Raye, TG Sheppard and T. Graham Brown. While quarantining at home, each artist recorded themselves singing the swampy tune before submitting it to Daniels’ team for a knee slapping, safer at home quarantine video.
“I still marvel at my son, Charlie Jr, for being able to take all these people, who were in totally different places, record them remotely and put the whole thing together for such a fun video,” says Daniels. “I’m just an analog guy living in a digital world. Thanks to all my friends for helping out.”
The results are a hilarious and good time video that finds Randy Owen introducing the tune, while Crystal Gayle dances in her studio, Larry Gatlin relaxes by his pool, Lorrie Morgan sports a mermaid tail and Rhonda Vincent has her hair highlighted all while maintaining a safe distance.
