If you ask John David Souther where he's from, he may say without hesitation; "I'm from Amarillo."But depending on who's asking, he may shrug and say: "I'm from everywhere, I guess." He would be mostly right either way.

Throughout his impressive career in LA, JD wrote hits and co-produced for the likes of the Eagles, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt and James Taylor as well as releasing eight albums of his own.

 

He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2013. J.D. is also an accomplished television actor.
