Aaron Barker was born in San Antonio, Texas, and began his musical career in a "variety band." His first attempt at creating his own song, "Baby Blue," was recorded by George Strait on the "If You Ain't Lovin', You Ain't Livin'" album and went number one on Billboard. Aaron then began to refine his original material in small clubs and cafes where he would play on weekends. This led him to writing, "Love Without End, Amen," which was also recorded by George Strait and hit number one on Billboard for five consecutive weeks. Barker also wrote Strait’s # 1 song "Easy Come, Easy Go" and Lonestar‘s "What About Now.” His songs have also been recorded by Clay Walker, Aaron Tippin and Willie Nelson.
