Charlie Daniels helps MNF intro with 'Devil'

It's been a tough weekend for country music legend Charlie Daniels.

On Saturday, his Tennessee Volunteers were crushed by the Florida Gators.

On Sunday, his Tennessee Titans were stomped by the San Diego Chargers.

But today is a new day, and Daniels and his band have worked with ESPN to help make the intro for "Monday Night Football" as Peyton Manning and his Denver Broncos travel to Atlanta to face Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons.

A reworked "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" will lead the telecast.

"I'm not used to working in only a minute and 18 seconds!" Daniels said.

The original version about the Devil coming to Georgia to procure souls (3 minutes, 37 seconds) was No. 1 on the U.S. country charts in 1979 and still is played today on radio stations.

"It's going to be very cool. And the game involves one of our Tennessee heroes in Peyton Manning," Daniels said. "If he ran for governor in our state, he'd get elected. He's that well thought of."
