JUSTIN'S ROOTS & MUSICAL INSPIRATIONS
Justin was born and raised near Fort Worth, Texas. He grew up listening to a wide variety of musical genres that spanned multiple generations. From George Strait, Hank Jr., Alan Jackson, Travis Tritt and Garth Brooks, to the Eagles, James Taylor, Jim Croce and Billy Joel. Justin listened and sang along to whatever was on the radio. However, it wasn’t until much later that he decided he should take his talents and musical abilities to the stage.
Justin served five years in the United States Navy as a K9 police officer, and after completing his honorable service, he came back to Texas to earn his bachelor’s degree from the University of North Texas and a master’s degree from the University of Texas at Arlington. He served the City of Arlington, Texas as a police officer for six years, and left the police department in 2012 to start a real estate company with his wife Theresa. In 2020, Justin and Theresa merged their real estate brokerage with Magnolia Realty, Chip and Joanna Gaines’ company out of Waco. Justin and his wife also co-own Vine Academy, a private school in Grapevine, Texas.
