Country singer and songwriter JT Hodges was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, and it isn’t too hard to see how music got in his blood, since his parents, both musicians with their own band, owned and operated a professional recording studio, Buffalo Sound Studios, which held sessions for artists ranging from Michael Bolton to T-Bone Burnett, among others. Hodges grew up in and around the studio, absorbing how everything worked, right down to the janitorial work. Later he attended and graduated from Texas Christian University before moving to Los Angeles, where he spent years playing gigs on the coffeehouse circuit. After he met and married his wife, the couple moved to Nashville in 2009. In the spring of 2010, Hodges landed a record deal with Toby Keith’s Show Dog-Universal Music imprint, which released a debut single, “Hunt You Down,” midway through 2011, and a debut album, the self-titled JT Hodges, in 2012. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi
