Flathead Ford is a blues-based band from Starkville, Mississippi. The band was originally formed in Columbus, Mississippi in 2005 as a hill country blues act and has morphed into a high-octane guitar based blues explosion with rock, funk, and jazz influences.
The band's roster reads as a list of Starkville area all-stars with lead guitarist, vocalist and frontman Jerry Carnathan of Columbus, Mississippi and drummer John Staggers and bassist Lee Graham, both of West Point, Mississippi. The three accomplished players also perform together in other acts as well, including the popular original country band Jamie Davis & Soul Gravy.
