BMI Nashville's Perry Howard dropped in to visit Colt Prather while rehearsing for his debut Epic Records release. Prather learned to play fiddle and guitar at any early age and began touring with his first band after graduating high school. He later took a full-time gig playing with the house band at Nashville's Stock-Yard restaurant and bar. During this time, Prather met producers Shane Decker and Blake Chancey, and eventually landed the deal with Epic.
