He was playing honky-tonks and beer joints at the age of twelve, and he met George Jones when he was just fourteen. By the time he reached the legal drinking age, he was opening for Ray Price, Merle Haggard and George Jones.
He grew up fast and it took a toll on Sammy Kershaw, so he took a break from music.
His career got rolling again in the early nineties and reached number one with, “She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful”.
