Charlie Daniels is going to put aside his fiddle and talk for a spell instead of singing.

The country music star, whose hits include "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," will be the speaker for the May 11 commencement at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington."Not only is Charlie Daniels from Wilmington, but he has been recognized by virtually every country music organization as a fine and representative artist in his field," Chancellor James Leutze said Tuesday.
