Our friends over at MP3.com recently relaunched their website, and to help them celebrate, we’re giving away a free song every day. Today, we’re proud to give you Colt Ford’s “She Likes to Ride in Trucks.”
One-of-a-kind country star [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Colt Ford[/lastfm] is full of surprises, and those surprises don’t stop with a singing style that’s unrivaled on the radio today. “She Likes to Ride in Trucks” (featuring [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Craig Morgan[/lastfm]) is just one more layer of complexity peeled away by the Georgia boy who is shaking up the game.
When most people heard the title of Colt Ford’s latest single, “She Likes to Ride in Trucks,” they were probably expecting something along the lines of “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy,” but by now we all know, that’s not what the song is about at all. Instead, it’s a wistful reflection of daddy’s girl growing up, and becoming an adult.
Colt unloads the feelings of raising a little girl who grows up to be a young adult right from the start:
“I know that growin’ up was just part of your life/ From baby to young lady, from woman to wife/ Not everything I do seems to be wrong/ Dear God, will you please let her hear my song/ This road life leads could be so long/ Lord I pray that she will always know her way home.”
Craig Morgan’s vocals on the hook tug even more at the heart strings, as he sings:
“She likes to ride in trucks/ She don’t need me around near as much/ I wish I could slow her down but my baby’s growing up/ And she likes to ride in trucks.”
It’s a sweat, caring, country, hip-hop, love song to a daughter, and yeah, it’s one-of-a-kind, just like Colt. Download “She Likes to Ride in Trucks” for free right here, and check out a Colt Ford concert this summer or fall.
