Clint Allen Daniels (born August 24, 1974 in Panama City, Florida[2]) is an American country music artist. Signed to Arista Nashville in 1998, Daniels charted two singles for the label. In 2003, Daniels signed to Epic Records, releasing a third single but no album. Although he has not recorded since 2003, he has co-written Number One singles for Joe Nichols and Montgomery Gentry, as well as a Top 20 hit for Brooks & Dunn.


Clint Daniels was born August 24, 1974 in Panama City, Florida, but raised in the Panama City suburb of Lynn Haven. Daniels first gained an interest in music as a child, singing with his sister in church.[2] Inspired by bluegrass music, Daniels taught himself to play guitar at age twelve. After graduating high school, he moved to Nashville, Tennessee in pursuit of a career in country music. By 1998, he was discovered by an A&R staff member from the Arista Nashville label, and was signed to the label that year.[2]

He charted two singles, "A Fool's Progress" and "When I Grow Up," which respectively reached No. 44 and No. 53 on the country singles charts. Both were to have been included on a self-titled debut album, which was ultimately not released due to Arista's restructuring.[3] Daniels moved to Epic Records in 2003.[4] Although he released a third single, the No. 56 "The Letter (Almost Home)," he never released an album for Epic and has not recorded since.

Daniels has also co-written songs for other country artists, including the Number One hits "Brokenheartsville" by Joe Nichols[5] and "Roll with Me" by Montgomery Gentry[6] (from 2003 and 2008 respectively), as well as Brooks & Dunn's 2008 single "God Must Be Busy". He also co-wrote two songs that were released in late 2010: Clay Walker's "Where Do I Go from You" and Easton Corbin's "I Can't Love You Back". In late 2013, he co-wrote Josh Thompson's "Cold Beer with Your Name on It". In late 2017, he co-wrote Jon Pardi's "She Ain't In It".
