Born in Dallas, Texas, John grew up listening to the Grand Ole Opry and early rock and roll music. He also grew up singing church hymns and learning to play classical piano. When he was just 16 years old, he and schoolmate Dan Seals, joined the group Theze Few–the band became Southwest F.O.B. and toured the Texas music scene. They had one hit in 1969, “The Smell of Incense”, which hit number 43 on the charts – and soon the band got to play on stage with Led Zeppelin and other acts. Later renamed England Dan & John Ford Coley, the duo was signed by A&M Records. The duo released eight albums, one which was certified triple-platinum and earned them a Grammy nomination. The duo topped the charts in three different nations—Japan, Israel, and the United States (where he notched six Top-20s (four of them charting in the Top-10).
