We’re coming up on over five years of having Colt Ford in the country music world. I can’t believe it went by that fast. I really didn’t get introduced to Colt until about 2011 or so well after his first couple albums had come out.
By all accounts there is no reason Colt Ford should have been a success in country music. The guy was a former professional golfer and he was bringing some hip hop influence into country music. But looking back on this song you have to think to yourself that this is a little more country than some of the stuff that’s going on right now with radio.
But it seems from a distance that Colt is a really smart guy. And he also has to be working really hard at everything he does because it would have seemed like everything was against him when he started out. But he went on and founded his own label, which has been hugely successful. And now he’s released five albums and all of them have sold well.
This song goes back to one of the first ones Colt put out. It didn’t get any radio play. I don’t think it got played on CMT or anything like that, but the song was a hit in many other ways. And it helped to build that fanbase that Colt still has today.
He’s still going strong and I think country music is better when it has people like Colt Ford.
Enjoy this little throwback to 2009.
