Colt Ford is a former professional golfer raised near Athens, Ga. He grew up listening to country music, and his first concert was a double bill of Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers in Georgia. He eventually gravitated towards R&B and hip-hop and made his musical debut in high school writing a rap for a friend. He found that writing came easy to him and began working with producer Jermaine Dupri and other developing hip-hop artists. His diverse co-writing credentials include country music songwriter Jamey Johnson, songwriter-guitarist Jeremy Popoff of the alt-rock band Lit and hip-hop writer Attitude. Other musical contributions include country artist John Michael Montgomery and country music duo Montgomery Gentry, hip-hop artists Bone Crusher and Sunny Ledfurd and No Doubt’s Adrian Young. He also wrote the theme song, “Buck ‘Em,” for the Professional Bull Riders organization. He released Ride Through the Country in 2008.
