Born in Fort Worth, Texas to a Baptist minister father and an English teacher mother,
John Worsham began singing at a young age in church and school.
At the age of ten he began playing guitar and began studying classical guitar at the
age of twelve. He took classical guitar lessons from G. Ricardo Fusco of the Memphis
Symphony Orchestra until the age of fourteen, when he began writing songs of his
own after the death of his mother.
John's first recording experience was at the age of 17 in Falls Church, Virginia. Fresh
out of Fork Union Military Academy, he worked with Mike Auldridge (Seldom Seen,
Linda Rondstadt) on a recording project with Allen Griffin
