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 Buddy's weekly radio show in Charleston, West Virginia
when he was 8 years old. J. K. made his own first appearance on radio at age
12 and first TV appearance at age 14.
His Uncle & Grandpa performed together at churches throughout the South and
many local barn dances. 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 which was a well-known gospel
group at the time. They did shows with the likes of The Stamps Quartet & The
Blackwood Brothers and folks were truly amazed by the young 14 year old J.
K. singing bass.
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.
He first cracked the country music charts in 1987 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, Nashville On
Stage, Music City Explosion, The Midnite Jamboree & Stars of Tomorrow. J. K.
has toured all over The World and worked with some of the greatest names in
country music. Jerry Reed, Loretta Lynn, Marty Robbins, The Bellamy
Brothers, Conway Twitty, Buck Owens, George Jones, Tammy Wynette & Jerry Lee
Lewis to name but just a few.
