Football fans listen up. On Monday, September 17, fans can tune into Monday Night Football on ESPN to catch a familiar voice….Charlie Daniels.

For one night only, fans can hear the Charlie Daniels Band new, reworked version of The Devil Went Down to Georgia that the band recorded for the sports show when the Denver Broncos will take on the Atlanta Falcons in Atlanta, Georgia.

“I’ve been watching ‘Monday Night Football’ since it started and to be a part of it kind of makes me feel proud,” Daniels said in a statement at ESPN.com. “I had to watch the lyrics real close because I’ve done those same ‘Devil Went Down To Georgia’ lyrics for 33 years.”

‘Monday Night Football’ producer Jay Rothman quickly shoots down any idea that the band will return for week three of the NFL season. “This is one of the fun things about having a new themed open each week,” he says. “It gives us a blank canvas to be creative and incorporate athletes, celebrities, musicians and others depending on the storylines of the game. We hope fans like it.”

Last October, Hank Williams, Jr. and ESPN famously parted ways after the country legend made unfavorable comments about President Barack Obama to Fox News. Hank had been the performer of the opening Monday Night Football song for nearly 20 years.
