Early Life & Rise to Fame

Peck was born in Jacksonville, North Carolina, but grew up in Coshocton, Ohio. She is the daughter of an United States Marine. Her parents both came from musical backgrounds. Her mother's side of the family traveled and sang in churches. Her father' parents and grandparents were steeped in country music, playing dances in the area. Before Peck was able to even speak, she was able to sing. The first song she ever sang was Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues," which she continues to perform in her live shows to this day. She wrote her first song before the age of 10, for an imaginary record company called "Danielle Peck Records", complete with song titles and cover art. She also sang in her church, as solo and as part of a choir. At age 16, she joined a band called The Neon Blue Band, which performed around the local area, where she was raised. With her band, Peck would sing everything, from Patsy Cline to Reba McEntire.

At age 18, her fathr bought Peck her very own sound and light system.

After graduating from high school, Peck went out on the road and formed her band, that perfomed at festivals and other events. She then decided to go for her dream and got to Nashville, Tennessee and become a singer, after several years of performing with her own band. She was first hired as a waitress, spending the rest of her time, working on her songwriting skills. Soon after moving to the Country music capital, she met Clay Myers, a publisher who recognized Peck's talent, and got her a deal with as a songwriter with Barbara Orbison's Still Working Music. Peck soon started writing for her staff members.

Current Success

She was working on her debut album, when he left DreamWorks and founded his own record company entitled Big Machine Records, also the present-day record company for teenage Country singer, Taylor Swift, as well as Trisha Yearwood.

In 2005, she released her very first single from album called "I Don't". The song peaked at #28 on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, making the Top 30. It was until June 2006, Peck released her debut self-titled album. Her debut album Danielle Peck, peaked at #23 on the "Top Country Albums" chart in 2006.

Her next single entitled, "Findin' a Good Man" did much better on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, peaking the Top 20, at #16. Now, Peck was in with the big names in the business, like Miranda Lambert and Kellie Pickler. This gave Peck her first significant hit. Another single from the album, "Isn't That Everything" was another Top 30 hit for Peck in 2006.
