Essential Super Hits is a CD by country rock artist Charlie Daniels. It includes a 5-song DVD video. It was released on July 27, 2004.

The CD is somewhat known for having rerecorded versions of "The Devil Went Down To Georgia", "Still In Saigon", "The South's Gonna Do It", and "Uneasy Rider", and "Long Haired Country Boy." In "The Devil Went Down To Georgia", the line featuring "son of a bitch" is sung as "son of a gun" and in "Uneasy Rider" many of the pop culture references have been updated. In "Long Haired Country Boy" the references to drugs and alcohol have been replaced.
