Colt Ford goes for Chicken and Buscuits in Twilight-themed video

Tuesday, June 29, 2010 – Colt Ford, will debut the music video for his single Chicken and Biscuits tomorrow on CMT.com. The release of the vampire-themed video corresponds with the premiere of the film "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," the third installment in Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series.

Ford thought his video would be the perfect medium to showcase a spoof of the well-loved series. He says, "Twilight is such a great love story, and Chicken and Biscuits is a love song about my wife and all country girls. I think the concept of this video is really funny. I hope everyone likes it as much as I do."

Ford adds a touch of twang to the soundtrack of Bella and Edward's tragic love story. The video, directed by Jason "Potsy" Ponciroli and produced by Ryan Zacarias, was shot in Nolensville, Tenn. and features Bella, Jacob and the entire Cullen clan. Ford stars as the brooding vampire Edward, only this time his craving for blood is replaced with an insatiable hunger for Bella's southern fried chicken and biscuits.

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 »»»

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. »»»
Every Chance I Get CD review - Every Chance I Get
The first thing you'll probably wonder when you set eyes on Colt Ford and learn he's a country-rap "artist" is whether the whole thing's a gag. He looks like the abandoned son of Boss Hogg and Hank Jr. But listen to the record, and read the liner notes: he really means it. Once a golf pro known as Jason Brown, this large-framed hick-hopper wants you to know exactly where he stands on topics like Skirts and Boots and copious shout-outs to saying grace and drinking moonshine. »»»
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: Stapleton shows his traditional roots – Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones – Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time. That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
