JT Harding was born and raised in South Detroit. As a young child he spent countless hours watching MTV while pursing his passion for song writing. His continued love for music led him to form several high school bands which eventually took him to Los Angeles where he made his first demo tape from prize money he received for winning the T.V. game show VH1 Rock N Roll Jeopardy. From there he has written top charting hits for Kenny Chesney’s “Bar At The End Of The World” and “Somewhere With You”, Blake Shelton’s “Sangria”, Keith Urban’s “Somewhere In My Car”, Dierks Bentley’s “Different For Girls”, Jake Owen’s “Alone With You” and the 4 million seller “Smile” with Uncle Kracker.
