ABOUT COLT FORD: Colt Ford’s latest album, Declaration of Independence, released on Colt’s own Average Joe’s Entertainment, will no doubt go down as one of the most noteworthy releases this year, which is saying a lot for a man who has already sold over a million albums, millions more song downloads and tens of millions of YouTube views. Named the #1 Debuting Country Album by Billboard and the Top 10 Overall Best-selling Country Album in Q3 (by Billboard), Declaration of Independence includes “Back,” a collaboration with Jake Owen, climbing the Billboard charts with 200,000 downloads in 3 months.
