In The Showroom
The reason Colt Ford's blend of country and rap feels so natural has everything to do with his background, both professional and personal. Just like his closest "hick-hop" competition, Cowboy Troy, Colt grew up listening to country -- his first concert was Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton -- along with R&B and hip-hop. When the Georgia native reached adulthood he began writing songs, eventually earning co-writing credits with Jamey Johnson, Jeremy Popoff, and the alternative rock band Lit. He went from behind the scenes to upfront in 2006 when he wrote "Buck 'Em," the theme for the Professional Bull Riders, Inc. In 2008 he released his debut album, Ride Through the Country, and went on tour with country music up-and-comer Brantley Gilbert. Chicken and Biscuits followed in 2010, with the impressive Every Chance I Get arriving in 2011. By this time, Ford had created a larger than life hillbilly redneck public image, but he was also a sly, passionate, and multi-layered writer and businessman, and as a former drummer, he knew what to do in a recording studio. .
