Live acoustic performance of Last Fallen Hero, the song that was axed by PBS from their 2002 Capitol 4th TV special. PBS thought the song was too serious and didn't match the Yankee Doodle Dandy spirit of the show.
Charlie pulled out because he felt it was important to honor our troops on the first 4th of July after 9/11.
Many local PBS stations aired this video of the song before the Capitol July 4th show.
"The Last Fallen Hero" by the Charlie Daniels Band is one of the best tribute songs for our beloved America's brave, honorable troops ... And its video of their acoustic performance is very moving with Charlie Daniels' emotions quite evident in his performance.David Bancroft, USA Patriotism! founder
