Daron Norwood (born September 30, 1965) is an American country music singer. Signed to Giant Records in 1993, he released two albums (1993's Daron Norwood and 1995's Ready, Willing and Able) for the label and charted six singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. His singles "If It Wasn't For Her I Wouldn't Have You" and "Cowboys Don't Cry" both made the country Top 40. Norwood also contributed "Working Elf Blues" to the multi-artist album Giant Country Christmas, Volume 1.
On November 5, 1995, Norwood decided to quit his career as a country singer because of his addiction to alcohol. He told the Lubbock-Avalanche Journal that during that time period, he was taking 20 to 25 shots of Jack Daniels a night.
Norwood also serves as a motivational speaker. His program, called "Keep It Straight", was developed to warn children of the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse.
