Charlie Daniels was brought up in a middle class family by his father William Carlton Daniels, and his mother LaRue Hammonds. From an early age he learnt how to play various instruments, including violin, mandolin, guitar, etc. He attended Goldston High School, where he founded the band Misty Mountain Boys with some friends, which was short-lived, as he moved to another town after graduation in 1953.
Charlie began his career in the 1950s, continuing into the 1960s and 1970s collaborating with artists such as Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, and has also worked with The Youngbloods. He became a professional musician when he joined the instrumental rock’n’roll combo named the Jaguars. With the band he wrote the single “It Hurts Me”, which was recorded by Elvis Presley in 1963 and put on his album entitled “Kissin Cousins”. As of the early 1970s, the band fell apart, thus Charlie moved to Nashville and started a solo career as a session musician.
Charlie’s solo career began with the release of the album “Charlie Daniels”, but it failed to chart. Nevertheless, he continued making music, and two years later came his first hit single entitled “Uneasy Rider”, from the album “Honey In The Rock”, released the same year.

Several of these albums went gold and platinum and some of them reached platinum certification three or four times, such as “Million Mile Reflection” (1979), “A Decade Of Hits” (1983), and “Super Hits” (1994).
