It is being reported that Daniels has died on July 6, 2020, of a hemorrhagic stroke at the age 83. Here is what you should know about his wife.
Hazel Daniels & Charlie Daniels
The couple were married on September 20th, 1964 making their years together to 56 years. Back in 2015, Charlie Daniels in an interview with NewsOK talked of how he considers his marriage as the greatest achievement.
In the interview Daniels and Hazel’s 50th-anniversary celebration in 2015, Daniels shared the story of the couple’s first meeting.
While playing at the Fondalite Club in Tulsa with his band called the Jaguars, Daniels says that a pretty girl walked into the club, and instantly caught his eye.
“She came with a girlfriend of hers one night. And I said, ‘Hey I like that curvy little blonde over there. Hey, how are you doin’?”
The two of them ended up falling in love and decided to get married. But since Daniels was so busy with his performing schedule, they had to fit their wedding in when he didn’t have a show.
“I had one night off. I had Sunday off, so we got married on a Sunday morning. I had to go back to work Monday night, so we didn’t have a honeymoon,” Daniels says.
Daniels was able to make that up to Hazel, especially since she started touring with him after their son started college in 1983.
“In the last 50 years, we had a whole bunch of honeymoons. We don’t necessarily take them on our anniversary, but we’ve seen a good bit of the world together,” Daniels says.
When asked what his secret is to maintaining a strong marriage, Daniels says the answer is really simple:
“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. 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.”
