Korn Unveils Cover of The Charlie Daniels Band's 'The Devil Went Down to Georgia'

Jimmy Fontaine


Korn has teamed up with YelaWolf to deliver a cover of The Charlie Daniels Band's "The Devil Went Down to Georgia."

In the new rendition, frontman Jonathan Davis trades off verses with YelaWolf as they take on the roles of "The Devil" and "Johnny" in the classic tale. "I've always said it, but country music is some of the darkest ever," said Davis in a press statement. "Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, and, of course, Charlie Daniels all turned pain into some really powerful music that sounded alive. 'The Devil Went Down To Georgia' is a classic story, and we wanted to release it now to help others in need."

All proceeds from the track will be donated to Awakening Youth, a nonprofit that helps youth dealing with the loss of a parent due to divorce, addiction, death, being surrendered for adoption and more.
