John Worsham

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.

During those sessions, Allen recorded two of John's songs, “I Should Know” and “Outta My Way”.
