“Ride Through the Country,” Colt’s debut, genre-defying album released in 2008, was re-released October 1, 2013, in celebration of the 5th Year Anniversary of Colt’s own independent record label, Average Joes Entertainment. A host of country music’s most respected artists, including Ronnie Dunn, Wynonna, Joe Diffie, and John Anderson, are featured on “Revisited,” joining such stars as John Michael Montgomery, Brantley Gilbert and Jamey Johnson on this breakthrough, fan favorite. The album is pure fun, full of southern, country rock party anthems including the Jamey Johnson co-penned, “Tailgate,” featuring The LACS, “Waffle House,” an ode to the off-ramp staple featuring John Anderson, the number one smash hit for Jason Aldean, “Dirt Road anthem,” featuring Brantley Gilbert, and the autobiographical, “Mr. Goodtime,” featuring Ronnie Dunn’s unmistakable vocals.
Colt’s previous album, "Declaration of Independence," debuted at #1 on Billboard Magazine's “Top Country Albums” chart, and included the hit, “Back,” a collaboration with Jake Owen. In 2012, Colt penned two #1 hits; Jason Aldean’s “Dirt Road Anthem,” and Brantley Gilbert’s, “Country Must Be Country Wide.” Currently, Colt is in the studio writing and recording his 5th studio release entitled, "Thanks For Listening," due out this summer and is sure to delight the legions of loyal Colt Ford fans and fuel this country star’s growing popularity from coast to coast.
