Colt Ford Releases Declaration of Independence TODAY!

Colt Ford.

Country music’s resident rapper, Colt Ford, released his brand new album “Declaration of Independence” to stores nationwide TODAY. The brand new studio album features collaborations with Jason Aldean, Wayna Morris of Boys II Men, Kix Brooks, Montgomery Gentry, Jake Owen, Darius Rucker, and many more country stars. The record was produced by Dan Huff (Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban), along with long-time collaborator Shannon “Fat Shan” Houchins.

“This album is very real and honest and by far the best record I’ve ever made,” Colt says with pride.  “The last two records—I stand up and cheer for them—but I tried to make a lot of people happy on the last two records and I took the edge off of it. On this record I put the edge back on there.”

“Declaration of Independence” is being released on Colt’s own Average Joe’s Entertainment. Over his career so far, Colt has already sold more than one million albums and over three million downloads of his songs. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see those numbers quickly rise with the guest stars lending their talents to Colt’s album. Check out the official track listing of Colt’s new album below and let us know what is your favorite country collaboration of all-time:

Due to a safety issue, Colt Ford and radio station WXCY were forced to cancel his free concert scheduled for Monday night in Charleston, MD. There was so much demand for the show that safety officials were worried about having that many fans in Wellwood Restaurant that they had to put a stop to the show. The show, which was scheduled to be an acoustic show, had an overwhelming response by fans in the regions wanting to attend. In a video posted on his YouTube page, Colt promises that they are working on a new location to host the event. Watch Colt’s statement below:

Colt Ford and Jake Owen Have a New Single

With so much buzz surrounding Colt Ford’s latest sinlge “Back” with Jake Owen, Ford decided to more up the release date and make the single available on iTunes now!  “Back” is the first single off Ford’s new album, Declaration of Independence, which is set to hit stores on August 7th.  The song was written by Colt Ford, Shannon Houchins, Noah Gordon, and Mike Hartnett and finds Ford reminiscing about some of his favorite childhood memories.

This is such a personal song for me.  It’s my life.  It’s about my past and my future.  I talk about friends that are no longer here and I talk about the way I grew up…To have one of my best friends in the music business, Jake Owen, be a part of this song with me is a big deal.  It’s a song that I wanted a friend of mine to be a part of and Jake is just on fire and one of my favorite singers. He captured the emotion that I had in this song.  I think everyone, when they hear this song, will want to call home.

Colt Ford

The power of the fans is proven once again!

Average Joe’s Entertainment’s, Colt Ford, was voted ninth on Country Weekly’s “Sexiest Men in Country Music” list. Ford was not originally on the ballot. However, a campaign video and a lot of fan dedication gained him the spot. As a show of his appreciation, Ford is giving his fans a chance to win an autographed copy of the “Country’s Sexiest Men” issue. You can enter to win here. Three winners will be chosen and notified via e-mail on December 12th.

Last week, Ford received some more great news when Jason Aldean was nominated for a Grammy for “Best Country Solo Performance” for “Dirt Road Anthem.” Ford co-wrote the number one hit song with Brantley Gilbert, and also was the first artist to record the song on his album, “Ride Through The Country,” in 2008.

Congratulations to Colt and his fans!

Colt Ford Reacts To Jason Aldean Grammy Nomination

When Jason Aldean recorded his take of Colt Ford‘s “Dirt Road Anthem,” neither of them ever thought they’d see the success that the single, originally written by Colt with Brantley Gilbert, has found. On hearing that the single might now become a Grammy winning single, Colt couldn’t hold back his excitement.

“I’m blown away by the impact of ‘Dirt Road Anthem.’  This song has been so special for Brantley, Jason, and me. Who would have thought that this song would make the whole world wanna ride down a dirt road?  It took an artist with no fear, like Jason, to take a chance on this song.”

Jason’s version of “Dirt Road Anthem” became a number one Billboard and Mediabase hit, and became a top 10 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The single had also earned Colt his first CMA nomination for Song Of The Year.

Country Weekly posted a poll asking fans to vote on who they think is the sexiest man in country music, and Colt wasn’t included on the list.

Colt Ford Becomes First Country Artist With Own Vodka

Colt Ford has teamed up with Georgia Distilling Company to produce his own signature line of alcohol “Goodtime.” The liquor line features “Goodtime Vodka,” which is 80 proof, and “Goodtime Moonshine,” which is 90 proof. They both hit stores starting today in Georgia and Tennessee, with expansion planned immediately.

I wonder if he’ll declare a national moonshine day, like Toby Keith did for National Mezcal Day this Friday.

“I wanted to have real moonshine made by real moonshiners and that is what I got,” said Ford. “This took over a year to get the government to approve, and it is really special. I could not be more proud to be involved with the Georgia Distilling Company and United Distributors. We have some great moonshine and vodka that I will put up against any on the market. This is gonna be a fun ride, and I am gonna do everything I can to make the world have a GOODTIME!”

The Georgia-based companies Georgia Distilling Company and United Distributors are Georgia’s biggest alcohol distributors. The idea to introduce his own liquor brand was originally thought up a year ago, and now Colt’s dream has become a reality.

Colt Ford Joins Jason Aldean & Brantley Gilbert For Dirt Road Anthem

Colt Ford.

Colt Ford surprised his loyal fans on August 16th by bringing out Jason Aldean and Brantley Gilbert for a very special version of “Dirt Road Anthem.” His friends were on-hand for Colt’s charity concert “Colt Ford And Friends.” The benefit show was dedicated to raising money for two police officers in Colt’s hometown who were shot in the line of duty. Tragically, one officer was seriously wounded and the other sadly passed away from his injuries.

Colt Ford and Brantley Gilbert co-wrote the original version of the hot single which Jason Aldean covered on “My Kinda Party.” Fans were treated to a teaser of the special version, and after hoping and begging for the trio version, they finally got their wish at the benefit show. See the video below.
