Dierks Bentley's 6th Annual Miles & Music For Kids

Colt Ford – one of my favorite country artists – is coming to Boots-N-Buckles Saloon in Lakeland on Saturday, Jan, 26. Not familiar with the name? You should, some of the biggest and brightest names in country music are not only friends of his, but they sing on his latest CD.

Colt has seen little love from mainstream media and radio because he is a country rapper. That hasn’t stopped him, the country charts see his name often and I personally can’t get enough of his music. Ford has charted six times on the Hot Country Songs charts, and he even co-wrote Jason Aldean’s 2011 single “Dirt Road Anthem”. His latest album, Declaration of Independence, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, and landed on Billboard’s list of 2012’s Top 50 Country Albums.

If you haven’t heard Colt Ford before listen to the video below. I understand that this sound isn’t for everyone, but I love it. I hope that we hear more true country rappers coming out of Music Row’s major labels.  What do you think?

Matt Stillwell another great new artist will also be performing on Jan. 26 at Lakeland’s Boots-n-Buckles. They both got it goin on!!! Tickets are $20 in advance and slightly more at the door.
