With his imposing physique, larger than life personality, and outrageous videos, it could be easy to lose something important in Colt Ford’s ample shadow: the music. But make no mistake, Colt Ford is a musician. A natural drummer, he is as comfortable laying down a beat as he is in front of the mic, singing and talking honestly about the country life he and his devoted audiences have in common. Like his heroes before him, the Athens, Georgia, native is the real deal. “Recitation and talking records were here long before me, and they’ll be here long after me,” he says. “I’m a country artist and I want people to know how much I genuinely respect this music and my fans.”

 

The reason my fans come out to my shows is because they appreciate that I’m talking honestly about their lives. I’m just like they are. When I get offstage, I don’t go eat tofu and drink wine—that’s not who I am,” he says, before pausing to testify once again to the power of the song. “It’s all about the music, man. The songs come first, and everything else is second. And because of that, I think this is the strongest record I’ve ever made.” “She likes to Ride in Trucks” featuring Craig Morgan is out on radio now!

    Country

    Colt Ford is back with his fourth and best album, Declaration of Independence. Colt wrote or co-wrote 14 of the album's 15 tracks and the album is produced by longtime collaborator, Shannon “Fat Shan” Houchins, as well as Dann Huff (Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts). Colt Ford is joined by guests such as Jason Aldean, Jake Owen, and Darius Rucker. “Back,” a duet with Jake Owen, is Colt Fords highest chartting single to date. His Fans appreciate his diverse musical talents by the boatloads, as a visit to one of his shows will prove. Colt has seen little love from mainstream media and radio but perhaps its the sense of not belonging that allows Colt to connect with his blue-collar fans. “There's nothing about me that ain't country,” Colt says with a laugh.
