He Considered His Marriage to His Wife As an Achievement
Charlie Daniels achieved some of the greatest things over the course of his decades-long career. But he considered no professional achievement to be any bigger than his marriage to his wife, Hazel. In more than fifty years of marriage together, the two built a connection that lasted a lifetime
“It’s just finding somebody you truly love that you want to spend the rest of your life with…If you can’t find somebody you’d like to spend the rest of your life with, don’t tie the knot, because that’s not gonna make ya happy,” Daniels said. “I’ve been blessed with finding the girl of my dreams, and here I am 50 years after without a regret in the world about marryin’ my darlin’ from Tulsa.”
