Nashville, TN (Top40 Charts/ Webster & Associates)
(June 12, 2012) -- Average Joes Entertainment's Colt Ford
has shipped his lead single, "Back," from his forthcoming album Declaration of Independence, to country radio. The new single, with its standout and relatable lyrics, features Colt Ford
with RCA Records Label Nashville star Jake Owen.
Written by Colt Ford, Shannon Houchins, Noah Gordon, and Mike Hartnett, "Back" is a compelling single filled with meaningful lyrics that come straight out of Colt Ford's childhood memories. "This is such a personal song for me. It's my life. It's about my past and my future. I talk about friends that are no longer here and I talk about the way I grew up," explains Ford. "To have one of my best friends in the music business, Jake Owen, be a part of this song with me is a big deal. It's a song that I wanted a friend of mine to be a part of and Jake is just on fire and one of my favorite singers. He captured the emotion that I had in this song. I think everyone, when they hear this song, will want to call home."
"Back" can be found on Ford's upcoming fourth studio album, Declaration of Independence, to be released Average Joes Entertainment August 7, 2012. This highly anticipated 15-track album release features collaborations with Jason Aldean, Boyz II Men, Kix Brooks, Montgomery Gentry, Jake Owen, Darius
Rucker and more.
