Brent Gafford is a 26 year old singer/songwriter from Carrollton, Georgia. Brent grew up with a love for music from an early age, playing in local bands with his older brother throughout his early high school years. After the band left home for college, Brent continued to perform as a solo acoustic artist, writing a little bit and playing shows throughout West Georgia. Brent’s influences range from a variety of genres, but his passion has always been with country music, idoling artists like Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown to name a few.
In the fall of 2011, while a student at the University of Georgia, Brent formed the “Brent Gafford Band”, a high energy country/rock cover band.

BGB has grown a steady fan base in Columbus, Georgia playing clubs like Outlaw Saloon and The Loft as well as in Auburn, Alabama becoming a local favorite at Skybar, 17-16 and Quixote’s.
