Korn And Yelawolf Have Covered The Devil Went Down To Georgia
Bakersfield nu-metal titans Korn and rapper Yelawolf have teamed up for a charity cover of Charlie Daniels’ The Devil Went Down To Georgia.
Having teased the release earlier this week, the band have now unveiled their awesome, heavied-up version of the 1979 classic via Bandcamp, with 100 per cent of the song’s proceeds being donated to Awakening Youth.
“We’re very excited to bring you our cover of the late, great Charlie Daniels’ infamous track, The Devil Went Down To Georgia,” Korn write in a statement. “Charlie left a musical legacy that goes beyond just one genre, and we want to honor his talent and influence with our own rendition of his song. It is available exclusively via Bandcamp, where 100% of all proceeds are being donated to the non-profit organization, Awakening Youth. Special thanks to our boy Yelawolf for jumping on the track with us.
“Join us in supporting Awakening Youth’s mission, which empowers young people who have lost regular interaction with a parent to life events such as divorce, addiction, death, and more, to realize positive change in their lives and awaken the motivation to be their best selves. More information can be found at AwakeningYouth.org. Exclusive KORN x Awakening Youth woven patches are also available at kornwebstore.com.”
