We all know Justin Timberlake's story. He parted ways with 'N Sync after seven years together and released his solo debut Justified in 2002. His hit single "Like I Love You" was the first step forward in a successful career of music, movies, and television.

It hasn't been an easy ride for Timberlake who, throughout the years, went through a number of public break-ups, struggled with leaving behind his boy band for a solo venture, and tried to balance an acting and music career, along with a personal life. But he's done it well. He recently married Jessica Biel and is set to officially release The 20/20 Experience tomorrow.

Long before he was tight-lipped about his future plans, love life, and career choices, JT was just a Southern mama's boy who invited writers into his family's home, revealed his deepest emotions, and the stories behind his music.
