Turner was born in Monahans, Texas, and attended school in Levelland, which he described as "a place so flat you can watch your dog run away for two days". He received his first guitar as a gift from his parents when he was eleven years old and his father taught him to play the songs he heard on the radio. He attended Texas Tech University in Lubbock, where he was an All-American decathlete. He also played in a band called Diamondback during his time in college.

—David Elkind (20th century)
“I would observe to you that what is called style in writing or speaking is formed very early in life while the imagination is warm, and impressions are permanent.”
—Thomas Jefferson (17431826)
