I keep missing these hidden gem videos and songs.
The latest example is a video remake of the song Swingin’ from John Anderson. The country legend teamed up with Colt Ford to create a great remake of the 30 year old classic.
I think it’s pretty cool. I’m a big Colt Ford fan. I was curious what he had up his sleeve in 2013 and apparently I completely missed this move.
Swingin’ – John Anderson & Colt Ford
You may not like what Colt Ford has brought to country and that’s fine. His brand of music is not for everybody. And I think that’s the point.
Colt Ford makes music for a very specific set of the country audience. He likes to sing about life and enjoying things like hanging with family and friends. I think his success has been underrated for a few years, but I guess that comes with the territory when you’re blazing new trails and being different than every other act out there.
You can’t beat a classic country song with a little update. I think it’s cool that Anderson was willing to take a little risk to breathe new life into his signature song. It’s great to see him out there doing well. He’s also always been one of my favorites.
What are your thoughts on the song?
Is it for you or would you rather let is disappear into the background?
