Cole Taylor was born in Cuthbert, Georgia. He was raised in this small town in the heart of the Georgia pines, and grew up listening to artists such as George Strait, Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, and Conway Twitty. Eventually, taught himself songs from listening to the Country radio. At the age of twelve, Cole started singing in churches and small festivals in surrounding counties. At sixteen, Cole opened up for legendary artist, Percy Sledge. He has also shared the stage with Shenandoah, Sammy Kershaw, and Brantley Gilbert, Colt Ford, Tyler Reeve, Corey Smith, Josh Gracin, Sunny Ledfurd,. Cole is a singer songwriter who writes about his life in a small country town. He’s country inside and out.
His dynamic, good-ole-boy sound is pure and captures the attention of all who hear him.
This young entertainer loves playing for a crowd, whether it’s near a campfire or in a stadium full of people. “The stage is a comfort zone for Cole,” The Sumter News reported the morning after watching Cole perform, “If you love good country music, you must listen to this individual.” Cole is entertaining, explosive, and “make you come back for more” kind of artist. His energy and enthusiasm are contagious.
Cole tells the Albany Herald in late July of 2010, ” All this started out as pretty much a hobby, but now it’s what I want to do for a living. I don’t expect things to happen overnight… I’ve got the patience to take it slow and see how things go. However, when I’m up on a stage and I see people singing along to the lyrics that I wrote.. there is not better feeling.”
Cole’s debut album, “That’ll Always Be Home To Me” is described by the Albany Herald as “more than a passing nod to Luke Bryan’s work in style and content.. and that’s a good thing.” They go on to say,”Taylor’s album is aptly named, as country images of “farm land as far as the eye can see,” “counting the stars in the Georgia sky,” “singing on Sunday bout Amazing Grace and how the cross was rugged” abound.”
