Anji Pearl & Charlie Day, August 18, 2017
August 18, 2017, Charlie Day is the nephew of Jimmy Day, one of the greatest steel guitar players ever known in the country music industry. Playing on the road with his uncle, and still just a teenager, Charlie was given opportunities to use his natural musical gifts playing with Willie Nelson, Charlie Pride, David Allen Coe, Merle Travis, Johnny Gimble, Johnny Lee, Web Pierce, Ferlin Huskey, Johnny Duncan, Floyd Tillman, and Mel Street to name a few. Charlie played often on the Grand Ole Opry, and was a regular on the Louisiana Hayride. Without formal training, Charlie has performed on stage most of his life. He once owned his own music store where he built and sold steel guitars. On the cold night of Nov. 4th, 2015, Charlie and Anji Pearl met at a pickin' around a campfire. Anji Pearl is the doghouse bass player and singer for the band "Pearl and the Polka Dots". Playing the upright bass only a short time, Anji and two others played as "Pearl and the Polka Dots". They spent the last three, busy years playing music festivals, The Old Settlers Reunion, SXSW (a famous Austin, TX music festival), and churches. They've even played at one of their favorite shows, the Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame. Since meeting, Charlie and Anji Pearl have been writing songs and performing all over Texas. During the week, the two of them work with Special Needs individuals where they have a program sharing their own and donated instruments. Charlie shares his love of music and teaches them how to play. He then, joyfully, hands them their own guitar. Singing classic country songs and songs they have written, Charlie and Anji Pearl sing the words they believe are true. They always try to provide their audiences an evening of pure and sweet entertainment.
