Colby Laney was born in Marion, NC, and began playing music with his father Bart at a young age. He began writing songs as a teenager and performing with regional bands before attending ETSU. While at ETSU, he performed with many nationally touring bands such as Mountan Heart (on the Opry), Next Best Thing (The Ryman), Alecia Nugent, Larry Stephenson Band, The ETSU Pride Band and others. In his final years at ETSU he began touring with Volume Five, and wrote a handful of popular songs for the band including the #1 "Rich Man's Daughter". In 2017 he was awarded with "Emerging Artist of the Year" and "Song of the Year" for performances with the band. Since leaving the band in 2019, he has mostly freelanced with other acts including Balsam Range, Charles Wood, Don Rigsby and Appalachian Roadshow. Laney also performs in East Tennessee weekly at several locations with the newly formed project, Laney and Friends, otherwise known as LAF Band.
