J.T. Harding was born and raised in South Detroit. Countless hours of watching MTV led him to Los Angeles where he made his first demo with prize money he received for winning the game show “VH1 Rock N Roll Jeopardy.” Before signing a deal, J.T. traveled the world as a personal assistant for rockstar Marilyn Manson writing songs during the day as Marilyn slept. Number one songs for Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban and the 3 million seller “Smile” with Uncle Kracker are just a few of J.T.’s ever-growing collection of hits.
