Charlie Daniels started his career as a pot-smoking anti-war southern redneck hippie outlaw type, but nowadays he's a bitter old right-winger. Somebody in his camp decided to name this otherwise super-ultra-middle-of-the-road lite-country showcase "Carolina Uprising" and nobody seems to be able to explain exactly why.
