Charlie Daniels has gotten back a guitar he "left sitting in the parking lot of a beer joint in southern Maryland in 1963."
It was returned to him by Donnie Barbra of Maryville, who repairs guitars for a hobby. Barbra had bought the guitar and discovered the musician's name on it. It was returned earlier this year.
Barbra got to meet the performer Friday at the Tennessee Valley Fair.
"Have you ever seen this before?" Barbra asked as he presented the instrument to Daniels. "It's been a loooooonng time," Daniels replied.
Daniels said he "certainly never expected" to see the guitar again and hopes to play it again. He is known for such hits as "The Devil Went Down to Georgia."
