    Charlie Daniels, who passed away Monday, was a great musician, a great man and a great example of what makes this nation great. He should be remembered not only for his contributions to popular music but also as a role model for the American dream. Starting from his high school days in North Carolina -- as he explained in his memoir "Never Look at the Empty Seats" -- he never turned away from his dream or the hard work needed to achieve it. "I wanted to be a professional musician more than anything else in the world, and ever since...
