Cal Smith was born in Oklahoma but grew up in California. He learned to play the guitar at a very early age and enjoyed spending time as a teen with rodeo performers. He began playing professionally when he was 15 performing at local bars. Cal didn't make his living at playing music until after his stint in the military. He started performing in the Bay Area of California and also worked at a local radio station. During this time the brother of Ernest Tubb heard him perform and gave him a recommendation. After Ernest heard him play he hired him to play rhythm guitar in his band and helped him get a recording contract. This was the beginning of his great career in country music.
