In about 10 hours, I will be seeing Colt Ford on stage at the Appalachian Fair in Gray, Tenn. I saw him last August, so I know what to expect when Colt and his band take the stage later tonight. I have the camera ready, business cards and Country’s Chatter pens ready to give out to fans, and my reserved seat, right up near the front. With those kind of plans for the evening, this is the perfect time for me to put up the following press release, that I received yesterday.
Colt certainly surprised fans at his Athens, Ga., benefit concert, when he was joined on stage by Jason Aldean and Brantley Gilbert for a live performance of Red Dirt Road. The press release and video from the event follow.
Athens,GA fans got a special treat on August 16th, 2011 when Colt Ford brought out some musical guests at his "Colt Ford and Friends" benefit concert with all proceeds going to two injured and fallen police officers. Colt was joined on stage with Jason Aldean and Brantley Gilbert to perform Jason’s number one hit "Dirt Road Anthem" that Colt and Brantley just so happened to write. You all asked for the video, now here it is! Check it out and don’t forget to pick up your copy of the original song on any of the following Colt Ford albums… Ride Through The Country, Country Is As Country Does , "Dirt Road Anthem" Live Feat. Brantley Gilbert.
Tomorrow morning, I’ll have pictures and a write-up about the Colt Ford show I’ll be seeing later tonight. But I have a very busy day ahead of me, so you all enjoy the video!
