Nicks was born on May 26, 1948 at Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, to Jess Nicks (July 2, 1925 – August 10, 2005), former president of Greyhound’s Armour-Dial, and Barbara Nicks (November 12, 1927 – December 29, 2011), a homemaker.
Nicks’ grandfather, Aaron Jess “A.J.” Nicks, Sr. (May 18, 1892 – August 1, 1974), a struggling country music singer, taught Nicks to sing, performing duets with her by the time she was four years old. Nicks’ mother was very protective of her, keeping her at home “more than most people were” and fostering in her a love of fairy tales.
