No one is ever remembered for not trying”

Colby Acuff

The Man Behind the Music

From North Idaho is a country boy with southern roots.  Starting at the age of eleven Acuff starting playing gigs in his home town of Coeur d' Alene Idaho.  Acuff has seen a lot of venues; from bars, weddings, fairs, and even the knitting factory in Spokane a couple of times.  Acuff's true love is writing songs, he loves telling honest stories that people can relate to.  Acuff's hero's are from all different time periods.  Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Eric Church, Tyler Childers, and Luke Combs, are all influences on Acuff's writing.  Acuff attended the University of Idaho after high school and couldn't be more proud to be a Vandal.  More importantly though, this is where Acuff's music had a rebirth.  The college students packed the houses for the shows and the music was growing into something Acuff had never dreamed of.  In 2017 Acuff got to share a stage with the Josh Abbot Band at the Spokane knitting factory.  After that Acuff knew that this dream was achievable, but first he wanted to finish college.  Acuff just graduated in may of 2019 and is now ready to release his first album titled "Life of a Rolling Stone" which will be released in January of 2020.
