Colt Ford Pranks Brantley Gilbert


In keeping with a long-standing tradition of pranking the headliner when a tour wraps up, Colt Ford, dressed like Batman, flew down from the rafters and surprised Brantley Gilbert on stage to sing “Dirt Road Anthem,” the #1 smash hit penned by the pair. Each night of the 35+ city “Take It Outside 2016 Tour” the two artists have come together during Gilbert’s set to perform the hit. Watch Colt Ford surprise Brantley Gilbert at one of their last tour stops in Salt Lake City.

Ford recently released his new single, “4 Lane Gone.” The song can be heard nationally on SiriusXM’s The Highway as well as in such major markets like Phoenix, Atlanta, San Jose, Orlando, Louisville, Lexington, Denver, Salt Lake City, Fresno, Spokane, Augusta and more.
Ford’s new album, Love Hope Faith, is scheduled for release early next year.

Colt Ford Finds His Voice on “4 Lane Gone”

Country Star Colt Ford’s brand new single, “4 Lane Gone,” made its debut on SiriusXM’s, The Highway, earlier this week. Known for his spoken-word delivery, Ford takes us down a new path illuminating his vocal range on “4 Lane Gone.” The long-awaited new single, written by hit songwriters Houston Phillips, Josh Thompson, and Kyle Fishman, introduces Colt’s next studio album entitled, “Love Hope  Faith,” scheduled for release early next year.

Commenting on “4 Lane Gone,” Ford said,

“I constantly try to become better as an artist. It has and will always be about the songs and the fans for me. Houston Phillips, Josh Thompson and Kyle Fishman, great songwriters and friends of mine, sent this song to me. I knew the moment I heard “4 Lane Gone” it was a hit, but I didn’t know if I could deliver the song the way it needed to be.” He continued, “I pushed myself further than I ever have, and I am so proud of this song. I know I am far from the best singer, but I have found my voice and I have never been more excited!”

Ford has been on the road all summer on the “Take it Outside” Tour with Justin Moore and Brantley Gilbert. In between dates, he’s been in the studio recording his sixth album scheduled for release next year.

Colt Ford has hit the road on Brantley Gilbert’s 33-date “Take It Outside” summer amphitheater tour along with country’s Justin Moore. The “Take It Outside” tour runs through October 15, 2016. Simultaneously, it was announced that Ford will be a celebrity brand ambassador for Affliction Clothing which has designed custom stage branding for Ford’s live show, signature apparel and artwork for his upcoming album.

Commenting on the tour, Ford said:

“When Brantley and I first started, we dreamed of being able to do this. It has been awesome to see his success,“ Ford said. “I am excited to be a part of this tour, and also have another great friend in Justin Moore. There will not be a more rockin’ show than this one.”

Also excited about the new visual stage branding for his live shows and his collaboration with Affliction Clothing, Ford commented:

“I’m proud to join Affliction’s team of brand ambassadors. Their passion, style and design are a perfect fit for me.”  “Affliction will be offering three signature tees, as well as providing artwork for Colt’s new album, and stage branding,” said Affliction Clothing owner, Eric Foss. “We are very pleased Colt Ford has embraced our brand and joined us as an ambassador. We like his unique style which makes a great addition to our roster of celebrity ambassadors who embrace the brand’s Live Fast lifestyle.”

Both Georgia natives, Ford and Gilbert collaborated to co-write Jason Aldean’s #1 mega-hit, “Dirt Road Anthem,” and Gilbert’s smash #1 “Country Must Be Country Wide.” When their paths cross on the road, they frequently take the stage together to perform these chart-toppers for the crowd.

Ford has been writing and recording new music for his next album due out later this year.
