Named after Belgian guitarist Django Reinhardt, Walker is the son of country music artist Jerry Jeff Walker and Susan Walker. When he was 16, Walker wrote his first song, “The Road You Choose”, and performed it on stage at his father’s shows. His father recorded it on his 1999 CD, Gypsy Songman, and Django Walker later released his own recording of it. His band’s debut CD, Down the Road, produced by Lloyd Maines, was released in 2002. Walker released the CD on a label he formed himself, Lazy Kid Music. He recorded the CD in five days, and wrote all but one of the songs. One of those songs, “Texas on my Mind”, was later recorded by Pat Green and reached number 1 on the Texas Music Chart. Django Walker had written the song while a student at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts.
