"Nominated for Album of the Year"

The son of a preacher man, Worsham has been blessed in his years to have rubbed elbows and talked shop with some of the more influential musical movers and shakers of our time. To his credit, it was more than place and circumstance. Worsham's album, Hearsay, is an adult contemporary nugget, chockfull of inquisition and introspection. After a well documented 15 year break from the industry in 1987, Worsham and his new album beg the question, "WHy did you ever leave?" - Omaha Entertainment Awards

Born in Fort Worth, Texas to a Baptist minister father and an English teacher mother, John Worsham began singing at a young age in church and school.

At the age of ten he began playing guitar and began studying classical guitar at the age of twelve. He took classical guitar lessons from G. Ricardo Fusco of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra until the age of fourteen, when he began writing songs of his own.

After playing solo and in various bands throughout his teens, John then went on to college in Nashville, Tennessee at Belmont University. At Belmont, he worked with various musicians who would go onto successful careers of their own: Jim Olander (Diamond Rio), Chris Rodriguez (Keith Urban), Dan Huff (Faith Hill and Madonna) and Wade Jaynes (Amy Grant, Boz Scaggs, and Randy Newman) to name a few.

After college, John wrote for the RokBlok music publishing company owned by Steve Gibson (England Dan & John Ford Coley, Michael Johnson, and Lynn Anderson). John wrote for a division of the company owned by Michael Snow (Bee Gees, John Lennon) it was under the tutelage of Mr. Snow that John began writing his best material up to that time. While at RokBlok he also worked with other artists including Tom Kimmel and Kathy Mattea.

In 1987, John walked away from music and for the next 15 years did no performing or writing. During that time, he was a waiter, a banker and a hairstylist.

He returned to performing and writing after attending a local music performance and seeing the ongoing demise of the American music scene. To ready his performance chops for larger Midwest venues, he began performing in coffee shops and bookstores. Since that time he has performed for various senators, congressman and other local and national luminaries.

The “Hearsay” album is the finest work yet of his career, and is a sign of even better things to come.
