The oldest of five kids, Walker lived in Vidor along with his dad, who gave him a guitar when he was nine years of age. Walker started entering talent contests at age fifteen. After leaving his shift as nighttime desk clerk in a Super 8 Motel, he halted in an area radio station to provide a tape of a tune which he had composed. Though the morning disc jockey told him that the station’s policies forbad playing self-submitted tapes, he played Walker’s tune and said that it was “too great to pass up.” After graduating from Vidor High School in 1986, Walker started working in a Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company plant. At nineteen, he also started touring as a musician, playing various local clubs and eventually finding work as the house singer in a pub in Beaumont called the Neon Armadillo. In November 1992, he was found by James Stroud, a record producer who had been also the president of Warner Music Group subsidiary company Giant Records. Walker signed to Giant late in the entire year.
