With his imposing physique, larger than life personality, and outrageous videos, it could be easy to lose something important in Colt Ford's ample shadow: the music. But make no mistake, Colt Ford is a musician. A natural drummer, he is as comfortable laying down a beat as he is in front of the mic, singing and talking honestly about the country life he and his devoted audiences have in common.
And while some may consider the Academy of Country Music Award nominee's style of rhythmic sing-speak to be rural rap, what Colt does has been a part of country music for ages. It's in Hank Williams Sr.'s "Kaw-Liga," and in his recitations recorded as Luke the Drifter. It's in the story songs of Johnny Cash. The double talking jive of Jerry Reed. The wild wordplay of Charlie Daniels. And in Jason Aldean's swerving hit single "Dirt Road Anthem"—a song co-written and originally recorded by Colt.colt ford
