Colt Ford Announces Release Of 7th Album

Colt Ford has announced September 20 as the release date for his seventh album, We The People Volume 1 (Average Joes Entertainment). The 14-song album includes the latest hit. “Slow Ride,” the groove-driven song featuring guest vocals by number-one hitmaker, Mitchell Tenpenny, to create a seriously infectious blend. The accompanying video for “Slow Ride” featuring Tenpenny was directed by Ed Pryor for Hideout Pictures and will premiere today, August 29, on YouTube.

Recently filmed in Nashville, Tennessee, the “Slow Ride” video includes performances by both Ford and Tenpenny as they recount the romantic journey of a couple in love.

For We The People Volume 1 Ford once again tossed the rule book out the window, perfecting his definitive distillation of country, hip-hop and rock.

“Making this one, I went back to the beginning when I really didn’t know any better,” Ford explains. “I didn’t let anybody tell me the rules or say, ‘You can’t do this; you’ve got to do that.’ Instead, I let the feeling of the songs guide me. The record reignited my passion for playing and making music. My music transcends politics, religion, and rules. That’s what this whole project is about.”

The album was produced by Noah Gordon and Colt Ford, with Shannon Houchins serving as Executive Producer. In between a marathon tour schedule of nearly 150 shows in less than 12 months, they recorded at Ford’s studio in Nashville.

Alongside guests such as Jimmie Allen (“Back To Them Backroads”), Mitchell Tenpenny (“Slow Ride”), Michael Ray (“Nightcap“), and more, his lead vocals and raps remain as robust and uniformly strong as ever, uniting the disc in a seamless flow. Nevertheless, “How You Lose A Woman” marks an emotional high watermark for We The People Volume 1.
