EARLY LIFE

Jim Lauderdale was born in North Carolina and grew up in Due West, South Carolina. His mother was a piano teacher and served as the musical director at their church. As a kid, he learned to play harmonica, drums, and banjo in addition to singing in church. He then went on to attend North Carolina School Of The Arts and graduated with a degree in Theatre. He began practicing banjo the most during and after school and then decided to move to Nashville.

MUSIC CAREER

In Nashville, Lauderdale did not find success at first so he made the move to New York where he played in Floyd Domino’s band. In 1991, Lauderdale produced his first solo album Planet Love. He began to gain some success and by 2009 he was nominated for his first GRAMMY. Today, the singer-songwriter has released 27 studio albums and has written for many notable artists including George Strait, Vince Gill, Blake Shelton, and the Dixie Chicks.
