This is breaking news from Yahoo News:

U.S. country star Charlie Daniels recovering after stroke, Reuters.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – American country music performer Charlie Daniel, whose hit "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" won him a Grammy in 1979, is recovering at home after suffering a mild stroke, his agent said on Tuesday.

Daniels, 73, was snowmobiling in Colorado on Friday when he suffered the stroke and was released from hospital two days later. He has no plans to cancel any upcoming concert dates.

"Charlie is doing well and looking forward to beginning The Charlie Daniels Band 2010 concert dates on February 27th in Ft. Pierce, Florida and February 28th in Brooksville, Florida," his agent said in a statement.

Daniels is behind a string of country and pop music hits that include "Simple Man," "In America" and "The Legend of Wooley Swamp."

"The Devil Went Down to Georgia" was included in the soundtrack of the 1980 movie "Urban Cowboy," which starred John Travolta and Debra Winger and in which Daniels also made an appearance.
