Texan John Ford Coley Recounts Days With England Dan

John Ford Coley, used by permission from artist

Throughout his more than 50 years in music, John Ford Coley has recorded a wide range of styles from Americana to soft and psychedelic rock, but is perhaps best remembered for songs like I’d Really Love To See You Tonight and Nights Are Forever Without You with his successful 70’s duo England Dan and John Ford Coley. After the duo disbanded in 1980, Coley never slowed down and he continues to tour and tell his stories. Leading up to his appearance at The Texan Theater Greenville on October 2nd, John Ford Coley talked to Notably Texan with many tales to tell.

Links to his autobiography, newer recordings and tour schedule are available on the John Ford Coley website. Listen to Notably Texan on KETR, weekdays from 11am-2pm.
