Average Joes’ entertainer, Colt Ford, releases “Keys To The Country” today, a six-song EP produced by Ford and Noah Gordon, and co-produced by Shannon Houchins. The new EP is available via all digital platforms.
Known for his all-star collaborations, “Keys To The Country,” continues the tradition with a star-studded lineup on the new EP. Featured are super-stars Kevin Gates and Jermaine Dupri on “Hood,” platinum-selling singer/songwriter, Josh Mirenda on “My Town,” RVSHVD, Dan Tyminski, and Vince Gill on “Keys To The Country,” hit songwriter Matt Stell on “Bad Beer,” and Jana Kramer on “If I Didn’t Know Better.”
Commenting on the title track, “Keys To The Country,” Taste of Country noted, “The up-tempo country-rock track has a little something musically for everybody, featuring Ford and Rvshvd in some staccato spoken-word and more melodic passages, down-home pure country chorus harmonies from Dan Tyminski and stuttering, sizzling electric guitar lines from Vince Gill in what surely be one of the most unexpected lineups in recent memory.”
People.com also remarked that “Ford seems poised to grab the reins of country music yet again, most notably via his rocker of a new single “When Country Comes Back” which celebrated his return to touring this past spring.
