The Cole Trains are an electrifying Americana/Country band hailing out of Safford Arizona.

Growing up between Texas and Arizona in China Spring Texas the band got immersed in the Texas Country/Red Dirt scene. The Cole Trains have shared the stage with acts like Stoney LaRue, Roger Creager, Josh Abbott, and Robert Earl Keen as well as other local bands in Arizona. Their music shares a mix of high energy songs to lyrical ballads and everything in between. Their First Full-length studio album “Lucky Stars was recorded with Cody Canada on the legendary Neve console at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606 in Los Angeles, CA, and is a must listen. The Band has found a way to please everyone from the acclaimed songsmiths to the regular country fan.
