Ford continues his Ride Through The Country this summer when he embarks on a 25-city national summer tour (see dates below).
Instrumental in launching Ford's career in country music in 2008, "Ride Through The Country," yielded an Academy of Country Music
nomination for Vocal Event of the Year for "Cold Beer f/Jamey Johnson." In addition, "Dirt Road Anthem," written by Ford and Brantley Gilbert, went on to become the first #1 song for both artists as songwriters when Jason Aldean
cut the track in 2010. Also featured on the title track, "Ride Through The Country," is John Michael Montgomery.
Fans will enjoy the journey back in time to hear five more familiar tracks - the PBR anthem, "Buck 'Em;" the Outdoor Channel theme, "Huntin' The World;" the NASCAR song, "Left Ya'll in The Dust;" "Big White Redneck f/Craig Campbell" and "Day in the Life f/Andy Griggs," written by Jamey Johnson.
