John Hord has been taking the Texas Country music scene by a storm. Growing up he found influences in almost everything he listened to, from George Strait and Garth Brooks to his very own father, Houston singer Jeff Hord. He spent his younger years singing around campfires and in a church band, and decided to pursue music professionally in early 2016.
You can hear the early traditional country influences and hear the Texas Country influences of Aaron Watson and Cody Johnson as soon as he begins to sing. He’s used these influences to mold his sound, and begin telling stories through his songwriting. Including his first radio single, “Blame It On the Whiskey.”
As he’s continued to grow as an artist, John has followed the paths of his influences and began heavily playing the Texas Country scene. When he’s not playing shows he enjoys spending his time with his family, hunting, fishing, and playing the guitar.
His first single, “Blame It On the Whiskey,” peaked at #33 on the Texas Regional Radio Report and top 40 on the CDXtraction charts.
