Ford announces new CD for September

Thursday, August 29, 2019 – Colt Ford will release his seventh studio album, "We the People, Volume 1" on Sept. 20 on his Average Joe's Entertainment.

The 14-song album includes "Slow Ride," the groove-driven song featuring guest vocals by Mitchell Tenpenny. The accompanying video for "Slow Ride" featuring Tenpenny was directed by Ed Pryor for Hideout Pictures and premiered today on YouTube Premieres. Noah Gordon and Ford produced the disc at Ford's studio in Nashville.

Recently filmed in Nashville, the "Slow Ride" video includes performances by both Ford and Tenpenny as they recount the romantic journey of a couple in love.

"Making this one, I went back to the beginning when I really didn't know any better," Ford said of the album. "I didn't let anybody tell me the rules or say, 'You can't do this; you've got to do that.' Instead, I let the feeling of the songs guide me. The record reignited my passion for playing and making music. My music transcends politics, religion and rules. That's what this whole project is about."

CD reviews for Colt Ford

We The People Volume 1 CD review - We The People Volume 1
Before Colt Ford hit pay dirt with "Dirt Road Anthem" he was considered a country music outlier with his rap/rock style and collaborations. He makes no apologies for it as he proclaims on the guns blazing opener, "I'm Still Me." "I'm still a whole lot more Georgia than I'll ever be Tennessee." Ford is known for his collaborations, and this album is chock full of them. Mitchell Tenpenny, Jimmie Allen and Eddie Montgomery populate his seventh studio album. »»»
Thanks for Listening CD review - Thanks for Listening
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups notwithstanding, two great tastes don't always taste great together. Take, for instance, country music and rap. Hick hop, if you will. Even the name sounds like an affliction of the diaphragm. Wikipedia says this sub genre really took shape with Bubba Sparxxx in 2001, but those of us with longer memories know artists have been trying to wed these antithetical styles since the Bellamy Brothers "Country Rap" in 1987. Back then, it was known as c-rap, a »»»
Declaration of Independence CD review - Declaration of Independence
There are those who would reject Colt Ford out of hand, based on his interpretation of country music. No matter how many fiddles and banjos he includes on his songs, no matter how many country singers he duets with, there is the inescapable fact that Ford raps on his songs. While country and rap have had a few successful pairings, the idea of a country rapper hasn't resulted in much significant airplay for Ford, despite record sales that would make any independent artist envious. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Turner pleases the traditionalists – Josh Turner is a hard-working citizen, a man of faith and a loyal father and husband. He also happens to be one of the youngest members inducted to the Grand Ole Opry. In short, he is the embodiment of country music's champion of the everyman. This night was special for him. He was celebrating an anniversary with his wife and his 18th with his label MCA.... »»»
Concert Review: Not much really changes for LaFarge – Just one look at the stage made it clear that this was not going to be a typical night with Pokey LaFarge. There were only a few guitars to be seen, which meant that LaFarge was going it alone. "I've been touring for years with a band," LaFarge told perhaps a few hundred people before he had even played a note.... »»»
