What to Expect
A veteran artist whose hit single “West Virginia You're Still My Home” had him touring the country to rave reviews and appreciative audiences throughout the 80's, is back… With new material that is smack in the middle of today’s Country Music and screams Americana at it's very best…
J.K.’s show includes several of the songs favored by fans over the years including, “Everybody’s Making It Big” – “There Goes Another Love Song” – “Damned If I Do” - “If That’s What It Takes (To Make You Happy)” – “Mother Trucker’ Blues” – “Long Time Lovin’ You” – “The
Way I Feel Tonight” blended with new songs penned by J.K. and some of the top songwriters from around the country. Throughout the show J.K. pays tribute to some of his country music heroes and spotlights the best of today’s top talent…
When you add the comedy and humor that has always marked The J.K. Coltrain Show, this is something special that audiences always come back for. This year J.K. has added a couple of new twists and features individual members of his band more then ever before.
The J.K. Coltrain show is a wonderful combination of Country, Americana, and a bit of Western Swing all presented with a tongue-incheek style of humor that makes for a toe tapping good time that the whole family is sure to enjoy.
J.K. Coltrain first cracked the country music charts in 1987 with a self-penned song, West Virginia You're Still My Home on the Studio 7 label.
