Nashville recording artist Buck Ford is a young, pure country singing sensation that focuses on keeping the traditional country sound and rhythm flowing. Bucks influences consist of George Strait, Merle Haggard, George Jones and Keith Whiteley, just to name a few. Buck and his band pride themselves on the fact that their performances "bring back to life" the sound and feel of real old country music.
Buck began his story as a professional motocross racer, riding the circuit for over a decade. He received a full ride endorsement with a Honda team through the West Coast Super Cross Series in 2009. He placed his riding career on hold to pursue his love and passion for country music. Despite his dedication and talent in the professional motocross scene, his heart has always been in country music, as he passed many hours on the road "picking away," at his guitar to good ole classic country music. His performances include performs his own written and composed music and covers songs from greats such as the likes of George Strait, Chris Young, Billy Currington, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Keith Whitley, Jamey Johnson, Craig Morgan, Wade Hayes, Mark Chesnutt, Tracy Lawrence, Hank Jr., Brooks and Dunn, Alan Jackson, Waylon Jennings, Garth Brooks and many more.
Buck has been successfully playing for over three years, and played with other fine musicians, such as James Mitchell, Kevin Grant, Chad Cromwell, Scotty Sanders, Glen Duncan, Gary Prim, Michael Spriggs, Cadillac Cowboys, Billy Wayne Hamilton, Gene Larry, Paul Dobbs, Brian West, Steve Clark, Jon Fine, Paul Sutherland, Clint Marrs, Mary Briseno, Craig Pexton, Pual Lauer, Clete Berg, Ronnie Elkan, Steve Clark, Cedric Wilmontt, John Gudgel, Gary Blodgett and many other talented musicians throughout the West Coast, South West and Nashville regions. Buck has performed at fairs, festivals, rodeos, clubs, many private events, weddings, and parties. He has also had the pleasure of opening for Jason Micheal Carrol, Daryle Singletary, Steve Azar, Easton Corbin, Steel Magnolias, Ty Herdon, and most recently Mark Chestnut in both September and October.
Since he has been able to combine the creative heart of country music with his values, which were learned from his motocross endeavors, of dedication, discipline and perseverance, Buck has the strong professional work ethic to back up his notable vocal talent. He exudes the charisma that audiences, both young and old, appreciate and relate well to; people seem to like Buck, a kid from today's generation, singing and paying respect to the values of the good ole days, making him a "one of a kind anomaly." He's a favorite everywhere he goes and a sure bet for any venue. Buck is working on his third CD. His 2nd CD "For Now", was recorded in Nashville and was released in Oct 2010. This followed his first hit CD from 2009, "Guitar and Gasoline", (both of those CDs are available on itunes, or Buck is currently playing pure country music all over the United States with his band, The Buck Ford Country Band.
