Born in Sylacauga and a graduate of Hartselle High School, Stan White attended Auburn University where he was graduated in 1983.

After graduation, Stan White’s professional career began in print media as a Layout Artist in Birmingham, and Fashion Illustrator in Macon, Ga. While in Macon, Stan White’s talent as an illustrator continued to pay off in the music business, when he became creative Director for Great Southern Merchandising.
