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.
Tritt began writing music while he was attending Sprayberry High School; his first song composition, entitled “Spend a Little Time”, was written about a girlfriend whom he had broken up with.He performed the song for his friends, one of whom complimented him on his songwriting skills.He also founded a bluegrass group with some of his friends, and won second place in a local tournament for playing “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys”.
During his teenage years, Tritt worked at a furniture store, and later as a supermarket clerk. He lived with his mother after she and his father divorced; they remarried when he was eighteen.He worked at an air conditioning company while playing in clubs, but gave up the air conditioning job at the suggestion of one of his band-mates. Tritt’s father thought that he would not find success as a musician, while his mother thought that he should perform Christian music instead of country.~Wikipedia
