Jamey Johnson Surprises Colt Ford At Grand Ole Opry
Presents RIAA Certified Gold Plaque For “Ride Through The Country,” Released in 2008
When Colt Ford took the stage at the Grand Ole Opry last night in Nashville, little did he know the surprise that awaited him as he exited the stage after his performance and standing ovation. Country star Jamey Johnson presented Ford with an RIAA gold certified plaque marking sales of more than 500,000 units of “Ride Through The Country,” Ford’s debut album released in 2008 featuring Johnson on the track, “Cold Beer.”
The RIAA certification comes just days before Ford releases his seventh album, “We The People, Volume 1” this Friday, September 20, 2019. Ford’s new video and radio single, “Slow Ride” feat./Mitchell Tenpenny, debuted on CMT Music and CMT.com this week.
