Album Notes
J. K. Coltrain was born in Columbus, Ohio. He spent his early childhood days between there and West Virginia where his parents operated a small Mom & Pop grocery store. His Dad also was an excellent auto mechanic and in fact owned a number of repair shops over the years and was a weekend stock car racer. One reason why J. K. is a Nascar fanatic to this day:)

J.K. grew up surrounded by music & musicians. His cousin, Buddy Starcher was a professional recording artist on Columbia Records and was one of the founders of the Starday recording label and performed on the then popular Midwestern & Louisiana Hayrides. He also introduced the late Keith Whitley who first appeared on Buddys weekly radio show in Charleston, West Virginia when he was just 8 years old.

His Uncle & Grandpa performed together at churches throughout the South. That's where J. K. made his first appearance singing in church at the ripe old age of 11. His first professional job was at age 14 when he began singing with The Pleasant Hill Quartet. A well-known gospel group at the time.

Of course in his teens he had to try his hand in high school dance bands like Fire n' Ice and The Four Aces but by age 20 he had returned to his first love country music. At that time J. K. helped form a 7 piece country rock group called 'The Southern Express'. They garnered a great deal of regional success and opened for many popular groups at that time such as The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Poco & The Marshall Tucker Band.

In 1983 he left The Southern Express to pursue a solo career as his heart was with more traditional country music. He appeared to be taking the music business by storm as he was often the featured artist on Ernest Tubbs Midnite Jamboree and many popular Nashville nightclubs. He first cracked the country music charts in 1987 on the Studio 7 label with a self-penned song, West Virginia You're Still My Home. Since then he has made many appearances on numerous radio & TV shows including The Nashville Showcase, The Midnight Jamboree & Stars of Tomorrow. J. K. has toured throughout the US & Canada and worked with some of the greatest names in country music. Jerry Reed, Loretta Lynn, The Bellamy Brothers, Conway Twitty, Buck Owens, George Jones, Tammy Wynette & Jerry Lee Lewis to name just a few.

J. K's future plans include to continue helping new artists as the President of Colt Records and Chairman of The Traditional Country Opry and making lots of new friends. Ya'all come out and see us when you can.....

Awesome CD. I enjoyed every track on it.
Every track on this CD is very good. It is real country music performed by a real country singer. Reminds me of the way it used to be before the pop country stuff started coming out.

Paul Webb -- Inside Nashville

J. K. Just Keeps Getting Better With Age.
J. K. Coltrains is just getting better with age. Traditional country hall of famer J. K. Coltrains new release is his best work ever. I am glad to see that folks on Music Row are finally giving him his just dues after many many years of struggling and trying to keep the country in country music.

JK's work is hard to believe
Hard to believe how J. K. has managed to maintain all these years through all the musical changes in country music.
