“I won’t back up/I won’t back down/I’ve been raised up to stand my ground” “Answer to No One”
Colt Ford’s story is so improbable, it could well be the subject for one of his songs, and indeed his autobiography is laced through his music on the five albums he’s released on his Average Joes Entertainment label over the past, from his 2008 debut, Ride Through the Country, to 2010’s Chicken & Biscuits, 2011’s Every Chance I Get, 2012’s Declaration of Independence and last year’s Thanks for Listening. Answer to No One: The Colt Ford Classics collects 13 tracks from those five – and one from the 2010 Mud Digger compilation – for the most complete collection yet of his revolutionary mash-up of good old boy country and the rhythms of hip-hop, a groundbreaking combination.
Opening Act: Tyler Hammond
Like many of today’s southern stars, Tyler began his journey singing in the church choir and practicing three powerful chords that every guitarist learned first. When he arrived on the campus of Georgia College and State University, he encountered a whole new scene that would ultimately shape him and his music.
His fame began at a local club where he used his music to entertain college kids on Tuesday nights. “It’s always a good sign when you play for a room once and return two months down the road to a crowd that has tripled on simply word of mouth.” Fast forward a few years and Tyler earned the opportunity to play with many of the mentors he used to admire. He and the band perform over 150 shows a year across all parts of the southeast and has shared the stage with a number of idols including Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, and Cole Swindell.
Tyler’s newest album, “Take A Sip” has not only been a best-seller, but also describes the wild ride they have been a part of for the past six years. It’s not just about the music for, it’s also about each and every one of his fans, learning to live a little, and knowing when to take a shot of whiskey.
This whirlwind of success has made Tyler far from complacent. In fact, he spends countless hours honing his craft and making music that the growing fan base loves. Tyler, with this strong foundation, is ready to take his passion and talents to the next level… one song at a time.
