About Charlie McCoy
Chet Atkins heard one of McCoy’s demo tapes and immediately hired McCoy in May, 1961. Monument Records soon heard about McCoy and hired him as harmonica player on Roy Orbison’s song “Candy Man”. It sold a million records. His album “Good Time Charlie” reached No. 1 in the Billboard country chart. In the 1970s, McCoy, as a studio musician, took part in more than 400 sessions a year. He has won 2 CMA Awards and 7 ACM Awards. For 19 years McCoy served as music director for the popular television show Hee Haw, and was a member of the Million Dollar Band. In 2009, Charlie was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame along with Roy Clark and Barbara Mandrell. He is regarded by his peers as one of the top Harmonic players in the world. McCoy will tour Europe this summer, prior to his appearance in Louisville August 9.
