He was born on March 15, 1927, in the small town of Maynardsville, Tennessee. Further, in his early years, Smith looked up to several country legends like Roy Acuff, Ernest Tubb, and Bill Monroe. These people were his early influences. In his teenage years, he learned to play guitar by himself and at the age of 15, he was performing at the San Francisco-based country band. After two years, he learned how to play string bass guitar. It’s easy to say that Carl Smith really loved music and it has been a part of his life. Moreover, his career started in 1942 and he was called “Mister Country,” maybe it’s because of his good looks and charm.
