‘Catch of the Day’ – Colt Ford ft Josh & Charles Kelley – “Young Americans” [AUDIO]
Today we take a look at the latest effort from an artist who is bet described as country music's biggest outlaw, who founded his own record label, a home for his music and for other artists to di it their own way. Just don't get mixed up in a skins game with this former pro golfer.
Born Jason Farris Brown, Colt Ford is a singer, rapper, songwriter, producer and record label president who co-founded Average Joes Entertainment, a label for artists who may not necessarily fit into the standard music industry mold. He has written several songs recorded by other artists, most notably, "Dirt Road Anthem", a song he co-wrote with Brantley Gilbert, which originally appeared on Gilbert's second album, Halfway To Heaven, which was released by Average Joes. The song would later be covered and become a hit for Jason Aldean.
But music wasn't always Ford's first passion. He was quite the golfer, qualifying for professional golf equivalent of the minor leagues, the Nationwide tour and playing well until a freak accident ended his career. At a reception party following a tournament, Ford met up with a sprinkler head, breaking his leg and effectively ending his golfing career; Ford turned his attention to music, and his unique blend of hip-hop and country.
Ford's music has appeared in many places, including his theme for the Professional Bull Riders Association and guesting on tracks for artists from Montgomery Gentry to Cletus T. Judd. He has released six albums for Average Joes, and has made countless guest appearances with other artist, generally on "remix" versions of singles. In May, he released his sixth studio album, Love, Hope, Faith, and we have the second single from the album in our spotlight today.
