This Grammy-nominated talent know as Jimbeau Hinson got his start in the business at age 14, after meeting Loretta Lynn who introduced him to her manager. He wrote his first song at age 15, signed his first publishing deal at 16 and won his first ASCAP award at 17. He later signed on as manager of the Oak Ridge Boys' publishing company and was instrumental in helping them transition from gospel to country. Says Jimbeau, "I've been fortunate enough to be called a master by many when it comes to lyrics. All I know is, it's what I love to do the most. Next to that is singing my songs for a live audience."
