Charlie Daniels is putting his writing talents to a different use: Later this year, he'll release a memoir, Never Look at the Empty Seats.

Due out on Oct. 24, Never Look at the Empty Seats chronicles Daniels' childhood in post-depression North Carolina, his early days onstage with the Jaguars in the late 1950s and the Grammy Awards-earning career that country music fans know Daniels for today. In the book, Daniels tells more than six decades of stories; the venerable singer will also include personal photos and valuable advice.

"I'm extremely excited about the release of my new book," Daniels, a 2016 Country Music Hall of Fame inductee, says in a press release. "Quite a bit is known about my public life, but there is so much more I've wanted to share: my early years, my faith, my struggles and the unique people and events which have had such an impact on who I am and what I do."

Never Look at the Empty Seats is set for release via W Publishing Group, an imprint from Thomas Nelson; the book is available for pre-order via Barnes & Noble and iTunes. Daniels' last album, Night Hawk, was released in August of 2016.
