Dann was born and raised in Music City to a musically gifted family. His brother, David began playing drums in third grade and his father Ronn Huff was a sought-after arranger on the cutting edge of Nashville's contemporary Christian music scene. As a youngster Dann would accompany him to sessions and to this day cites his father as his first influence. Huff started playing guitar at the age of 9. He took a few lessons, even classical, but played mostly by ear. When he was 13, a session guitarist by the name of John Darnall taught him his first scale, and that set the young Dann Huff on the career path he followed.

According to Hoyle, Dann Huff literally played on at least one track with almost every recording artist in the 1980s, as well as most of Nashville's releases in the 1990s. His sessions resume includes Barbra StreisandKenney Loggins, Reba McEntireCeline DionDC TalkShania TwainMichael BoltonLuther VandrossPeter CeteraDonna SummerRod StewartMichael JacksonMadonnaWhitney HoustonAmy GrantFine Young CannibalsBarry ManilowThe TemptationsChaka KhanO'JaysSmokey RobinsonClint BlackFaith HillTim McGrawWhitesnakeNatalie ColeGladis KnightNeville BrothersDusty SpringfieldRick SpringfieldOlivia Newton-JohnToby KeithBilly JoelJoe CockerBryan FerryPeter WolfMartina McBrideChicagoWynonnaGlen CampbellPaula AbdulTammy WynetteMariah CareyMerle HaggardBob SegerBoz Scaggs and countless others.

Huff's move into production was the result of friendly persuasion by Mutt Lange, who told Huff, "You are a producer in guitarist's clothes." He was flattered but didn't know where to start until Lange recommended Huff to Faith Hill. Within a couple of years, Dann Huff was making a name for himself as a producer in Nashville. His credits included Faith HillLonestar and newcomers SHeDaisy, as well as two Megadeth albums. What he couldn't have predicted was that Lonestar and SHeDaisy would become award-winning acts selling millions of albums. As their careers took off, so did his. Today, Dann ranks among Music Row's most in-demand producers, with an impressive production discography that includes Keith UrbanRascal FlattsFaith HillLonestarCarrie UnderwoodJewelWynonnaDeana CarterPat GreenBilly Ray CyrusJimmy WayneShedaisyKenny RogersLeann RimesMartina McBrideBryan WhiteChely WrightRebecca St. JamesCollin RayeTrace AdkinJulianne HoughSteel MagnoliaBon Jovi and Steven Tyler, just to name a few

Some of Dann's awards include: 2016 CMA ‘Musician of the Year’, 2014 ACM Producer of the Year, 2010 ACM Producer of the Year, 2006 ACM Producer of the Year, 2006 MUSIC ROW AWARDS Producer of the Year, 2005 Grammy Recipient for Best Album, 2004 CMA Musician of the Year and 2001 CMA Musician of the Year.
