Biography

Born and raised in the modest town of Aylmer, Quebec,Canada, Nelson Colt grew up listening to country music. He discovered his talents at an early age, and when he received his first guitar, he was hooked for life. His influences were Merle Haggard, Ricky Skaggs, George Strait, Alabama, and Alan Jackson.
Nelson started by performing at the age of sixteen in his hometown, then he put a group together and did some touring in Ontario and Quebec for a few years. During that time, he entered all the talent shows he could find, winnings first place in most of them. In 2003, with the help of his good friend and band-mate, Al Bragg, Nelson put together a tribute show to his all time heroe, George Strait, and named it "Pure Strait Country". Working with Canadian Country Music Association award winning musicians, Nelson had a very successful run as George!
