Colt Ford Honored By Home State
March 9, 2011 at 6:36 AM (PT)
AVERAGE JOE’S ENTERTAINMENT artist COLT FORD was recognized by the State of GEORGIA’s HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES and SENATE YESTERDAY (3/7), as they passed resolutions recognizing the artist’s talent and work, including his latest album, “Chicken & Biscuits,” and the themes that he has written for the PROFESSIONAL BULL RIDERS ASSOCIATION, such as “Buck Em’” and ‘Huntin’ The World,” for the OUTDOOR CHANNEL.
FORD joked that he's usually at home talking in a microphone like the one he stood in front of in the HOUSE chamber, but usually under different circumstances. "Normally, it's late at night and in front of a bunch of drunk people,” said FORD. "I hope that's not the case right now.”
The day included a reunion with his boyhood friend, state Rep. DOUG McKILLIP, R-ATHENS. "I don't know what kind of job he's doing up here," FORD joked. "But I can tell you some other stories about that." FORD said he's turned down repeated requests that he move from ATHENS to NASHVILLE. "I'm a GEORGIA boy, and I'll stay that way until the day I die," said FORD.
FORD’s 3rd studio album, “Every Chance I Get,” will be released on AVERAGE JOE’s ENTERTAINMENT on MAY 3rd. For more on COLT FORD, visit www.coltford.com.
