JT Harding first moved from his native South Detroit to Los Angeles to pursue music; there, he worked as an assistant to the band Linkin Park, made a demo tape with prize money he won on the VH1 game show Rock & Roll Jeopardy! and was subsequently signed by EMI and Atlantic Records. After penning his first #1, Uncle Kracker’s single “Smile,” JT relocated to Nashville. Harding has since written 7 #1 songs for artists such as Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Dierks Bentely, Kenny Chesney, Jake Owen, and Darius Rucker. He’s had other songs recorded by The Goo Goo Dolls, Five For Fighting, Racal Flatts, Billy Currington, and many others. JT brings unsurpassed energy and fun to every event.
