Much like most boys born and raised in South Mississippi Anthony Ainsworth began his musical journey in the church children’s choir. With a unique voice and a love for singing Anthony instantly stood out and grabbed up any oppritunities that came for singing a solo in the Sunday services. In his early teens the country music scene was booming with acts such as Garth Brooks, Travis Tritt, Allen Jackson, . . . . . while the rock stations were playing Metalica and Nirvana, Anthony took a liking to both, thus explaining his jagged edge style of country, if you asked him what kind of music he plays he’ll likely answer “I call it country”. At the age of fourteen Anthony began writing, “mostly trial and error”, at seventeen he started taking guitar lessons, played his first paying gig at nineteen, and has been hanging around the local music scene since.
