This morning, tickets went on sale at Johnson City’s Freedom Hall. They are for a show that will star Jason Aldean, and the opening act is Colt Ford. The show will be Nov. 20. And I have a feeling it’s going to sell out fast!
Colt has a new CD/DVD out, exclusively at Walmart.The release date is Oct 6. That is going to be a busy day for CD shoppers. I got a copy today, and I listened to it. I think Colt is pretty cool, but unfortunately, I still don’t think he sings country music. He’s being described as a “country rapper”. But I’m afraid all I hear is the rap part.
I’m not in the majority here, however. Colt has quite a following. And his fans really love his music. They are definitely wild about Colt! I can understand that. But, I’m old, and a very, very long time country music fan. And perhaps I’m just too set in my ways to change what I like. So, while Colt’s music may never become part of my list of favorites, I definitely think he’s a pretty cool guy. I’m really looking forward to seeing him next month in Johnson City.
The brand new CD/DVD from Average Joe’s Entertainment’s Colt Ford, COUNTRY IS AS COUNTRY DOES, is a compilation of live recordings, video footage and studio tracks and can be pre-ordered through Walmart.com beginning today for only $10.00 (a savings of nearly $4). This package is exclusive to Walmart, available in stores Tuesday, October 6, 2009.
“It’s cool to have a DVD with all my videos and behind the scene footage as well as tons of live stuff for the fans,” says Ford. “As a songwriter, there’s always so much material, and I’m so blessed to have an outlet like Walmart to get it to all the fans who have been asking for it! I’m already working on a record for 2010 and can’t wait to share some of those songs with the fans on tour this fall!”
Tracks on the new album include: “Buck ‘Em,” “Huntin’ The World,” “Big White Redneck”,” “Day In The Life” featuring Andy Griggs,” “Left You In The Dust” (NASCAR song), BS “Dirt Road Anthem” featuring The Brantley Gilbert Band,

Time to run. Tonight I have the Mallary Hope and Easton Corbin show in Bristol. So you’ll all be hearing about that one tomorrow or the next day. Talk to you all soon!
