Colt Ford 22217
Delivering a unifying message to his loyal fan base, “Love  Hope  Faith,” Colt Ford’s sixth studio album, celebrates all things that bring us together — friends, family and our faith for a better future. Produced by Shannon “Fat Shan” Houchins and Noah Gordon, “Love  Hope  Faith” is scheduled for release on Average Joes Entertainment May 5, 2017. Ford will kick off the “Love  Hope  Faith” 22-city tour on February 24 with more dates to follow. Pre-order “Love  Hope  Faith” on iTunes and instantly receive “Reload” f/Taylor Ray Holbrook and the first single, “4 Lane Gone.”

Featuring such guests as Music City stalwarts Brad Paisley (“Lookin’ for a Hand Out”), Toby Keith (“Time Flies”), Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley and brother Josh (“Young Americans”) and veteran rockers Lit (“I’m Mud”); promising newcomers like Waterloo Revival’s Cody Cooper and George Birge (“Dynamite”), Tyler Farr (“My Truck”), Taylor Ray Holbrook (“Reload”), Javier Colon (“No Rest”) and Granger Smith (“Keepin’ It Real”), “Love Hope Faith” is the ultimate populist country record, featuring a little something for everyone.

“Love Hope Faith” was created with some of the leading songwriters in music today, Jeff Hyde (“Lookin’ for a Hand Out”) and Jeffrey Steele, Jeremy Popoff, Shane Minor, Vicky McGehee (“Bad Day feat. Rizzi Myers”), to Jaren Johnston, Neil Mason and Jesse Frasure (“Dirt Road Disco”) to Walker Hayes, Thomas Archer and Marshall Altman (“No Rest”), Eric Dodd and Alex Hall (“Dynamite”) and Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins, David Lee Murphy (“Keepin’ It Real feat. Granger Smith”). Still, it is the sturdy persona of Colt Ford that gives them their consistency.

“There are a lot of different styles on this album, but I think my fans will hear it’s just me,” said Ford. “As long as I remain true to myself, I can delve into all of them.”
