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.
