"My way of living is simple and I’m inspired by the long line of legendary men born in the West who worked to make their living moving cows, growing crops in the fields or riding a bucking bull."
KOLT BARBER is just a good, ole boy—plain and simple. He’s a hard-working, hands-on Georgia native who’ll be the first to say he’s endured bumps and bruises from life mistakes; but with a cowboy spirit that runs deep, the maverick has the tenacity to get back on the horse. He’s a devout patron of the land whose favorite canvas is painted from a front porch swing view that gazes across the crop fields and grazing horses.
Marrying his passion for the land with his love for music, Kolt has spent years writing and performing before heartland country music fans. His dedication to his fellow blue-collar crop growers and livestock wranglers, and his country music following, make him a standout in both fields.
With the grit of toughened leather and a gentle man’s demeanor, Kolt Barber is a true country purist. The rugged, loyal man with a mysterious aura, untamed spirit and innocent charm feels as much at home roaming the pastures on his ranch by day as he does setting fire to the stage with an electric performance each night.
Kolt is a contemporary/traditional country music recording artist who is a charismatic, engaging and electric live stage performer (likened to Garth Brooks). He has enjoyed grand success catering to audiences at fairs, festivals, rodeos, AG and trade shows, casinos, small opry houses and more.
Playing nearly 70 shows a year, he’s shared the stage with numerous country music legends, including Travis Tritt, John Anderson, Tanya Tucker and has sat across the dining table swapping jokes and exchanging wisdoms with Waylon Jennings—one of his biggest influences (in line with Haggard, Cash, Vern Gosdin and The Eagles).
When it comes down to it, the laid-back, real time cowboy is as honest as the day is long. Before a crowd of 40,000 or 400, Kolt Barber does not disappoint. His deep, rich, baritone voice captivates with the drop of every heartfelt note; his dynamic stage show is a must-see attraction. With gumption to give it his all, Kolt Barber delivers a performance as exciting as an 8-second ride.
