Daron Norwood (September 30, 1965 – July 22, 2015) was an American country music singer. He released two albums for Giant Records and charted six times on Hot Country Songs.
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.


Two singles off his debut album, “If It Wasn’t For Her I Wouldn’t Have You” and “Cowboys Don’t Cry”, both made the country Top 40. The title track of his second album was later a Top 20 hit in 1996 for Lari White.


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.
