Korn have shared a cover of The Charlie Daniels Band classic “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” featuring YelaWolf exclusively via Bandcamp.
All proceeds from the track will be donated to Awakening Youth, a nonprofit organization devoted to young people faced with the loss of a parent due to divorce, addiction, death, being surrendered for adoption, or other reasons.
Recorded during the sessions for latest record, The Nothing, the track honours the late Charlie Daniels.
“I’ve always said it, but country music is some of the darkest ever,” Jonathan Davis says.
“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.”
This continues the relationship between Korn and Awakening Youth.
The organisation figured prominently in the documentary LOUD KRAZY LOVE about guitarist and co-founder Brian “Head” Welch.
Awakening Youth fulfils a mission to uplift at-risk young men and women in the wake of losing a parent.
The team offers one-on-one individualised support to personally encourage and motivate and, ultimately, restore families.
