James Travis Tritt was born on February 9, 1963, in Marietta, Georgia, to James and Gwen Tritt. He first took interest in singing after his church’s Sunday school choir performed Everything Is Beautiful. He received his first guitar at age eight and taught himself how to play it; in the fourth grade, he performed Annie’s Song and King of the Road for his class, and later got invited to play for other classrooms in his school. At age fourteen, his parents bought him another guitar, and he learned more songs from his uncle, Sam Lockhart. Later on, Tritt joined his church band, which occasionally performed at other churches nearby.
