Singing of adolescent dreams of trying to “live big in a small town,” Taste of Country calls “Young Americans” a “universal blast of nostalgia.”
Commenting on the collaboration with the Kelleys, Ford recently told Billboard Magazine, “I’ve known those boys forever. They are Georgia guys. We’ve been good friends for a long time, and they are two of my favorite singers. Charles and I talked about doing something together for a long time. We just had to find the right song. When I heard it, I thought it had the right groove, and I thought about getting Josh in on it too.” Listen to the song HERE

Delivering a unifying message to his loyal fan base, “Love Hope Faith,” Colt Ford’s sixth studio album, celebrates all things that bring us together — friends, family and our faith for a better future. Produced by Shannon “Fat Shan” Houchins and Noah Gordon. Featuring such guests as Music City stalwarts Brad Paisley (“Lookin’ for a Hand Out”), Toby Keith (“Time Flies”), Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley and brother Josh (“Young Americans”) and veteran rockers Lit (“I’m Mud”); promising newcomers like Waterloo Revival’s Cody Cooper and George Birge (“Dynamite”), Tyler Farr (“My Truck”), Taylor Ray Holbrook (“Reload”), Javier Colon (“No Rest”) and Granger Smith (“Keepin’ It Real”), “Love Hope Faith” is the ultimate populist country record, featuring a little something for everyone.
“Love Hope Faith” was created with some of the leading songwriters in music today, Jeff Hyde (“Lookin’ for a Hand Out”) and Jeffrey Steele, Jeremy Popoff, Shane Minor, Vicky McGehee (Bad Day feat. Rizzi Myers), to Jaren Johnston, Neil Mason and Jesse Frasure (“Dirt Road Disco”) to Walker Hayes and Thomas Archer (“No Rest”), Eric Dodd and Alex Hall (“Dynamite”) and Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins, David Lee Murphy (Keepin’ It Real feat. Granger Smith). Still, it is the sturdy persona of Colt Ford that gives them their consistency.
“There are a lot of different styles on this album, but I think my fans will hear it’s just me,” said Ford. “As long as I remain true to myself, I can delve into all of them.”
