This week’s blog is about singer, song writer, rapper, entrepreneur, and professional golfer, Colt Ford. I had the pleasure of meeting him recently right before the COVID shut down. I wanted to share with you some things that not even I knew about him. He co-wrote Jason Aldean’s number 1 song “Dirt Road Anthem” with Brantley Gilbert and Brantley Gilbert’s number 1 song “Country Must Be Country Wide” He is a man of many talents, indeed. Professional Golfer? Earlier this year, Colt captured closest to the pin at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am and won $100,000 for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. St. Jude is my favorite charity and I love that he is in support as well. What’s my first impression of Colt? He has to be one of the most down to earth men in the biz. A real genuine and talented guy.
He is into collaboration for sure. He has songs featuring artists like:
James Otto “Chicken and Biscuits” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-VPYMZ94TY
John Michael Montgomery “Ride Through the Country” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pee07DX6tXw
Tim McGraw “Twisted” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sExx4DXNlmI
Keith Urban “She’s Like” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVoDL0VUbFk
Jake Owen “Back” just to name a few. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KWZQgdZOmk
So, what is he up to now? He has been writing and releasing new music including this one called “Back To Them Backroads” features #1 hit maker Jimmie Allen and found on his new album “We the People”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vt7YjfhivP0 and a new “social distance”: record called “Chicken & Distance”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OneURBhOtY0&feature=youtu.be
And as with most artists these days, he had to postpone his tour, sadly. In fact, the night I caught up with him at The Knockin’ Boots Saloon here in Gainesville, was his second to last show due to COVID. I got a little video with him. Teehee…I got him to say GO GATORS a few times (he is a Bulldog fan). Check it out: https://www.facebook.com/beckyd1037/videos/913624655783175/
Great news, he has joined the Drive-in Show circuit so perhaps we will see him again soon.
