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.
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.
"Kolt Barber and his band were a HUGE hit at the Walthall County Dairy Festival this year. We've received so many positive comments from folks that absolutely loved the show.

"We did an event with Kolt and his show was what Country Music should always be. A throwback to when Country was genuine and authentic. If you get a chance to see him in person, you will be blown away. Every song on the “Just Call Me Country” project is worth a listen!!!"

"I have been in this business for many many years, met and interviewed many of Country Music’s greatest artists, and as a person of integrity, compassion and talent I would have to say that Kolt Barber would have to rank right up there with the best of them. An artist who has not compromised his standards or values."
