Charlie Floyd (born in Aynor, South Carolina) is an American country music singer. Floyd performed in his native South Carolina for several years, and opened a nightclub called Charlie's Nite Life in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.[1] In 1993, he signed to Liberty Records and released his debut album, also titled Charlie's Nite Life. Alanna Nash of Entertainment Weekly gave Floyd's album a B rating, saying that Floyd had "the gruff voice of a '70s Southern rocker but his songs belie his tough-guy sound."[2] The album produced two chart singles in "I've Fallen in Love (And I Can't Get Up)" and "Good Girls Go to Heaven". After the album's release, Floyd closed the nightclub, but reopened it in 1998.[3]
