Biography

Jason Farris Brown was born and raised in Athens, Georgia. He was a professional golfer,[1] playing in one Nationwide Tour but mostly serving as a golfing instructor.[2] Later, he turned his interests to music, taking influence from country music and hip hop.[1] Assuming the stage name Colt Ford, he released his debut album, Ride Through the Country, on December 2, 2008. This album included the singles "No Trash in My Trailer"[3] (a cover of a Gene Watson song) and "Ride Through the Country" (a duet with John Michael Montgomery), the latter of which did not chart until the week of October 10, 2009 when it debuted at #57 on the Hot Country Songs chart. He also appeared on a rap remix of Montgomery Gentry's late-2008 Number One single "Roll with Me."[4] Ford's debut album also has guest appearances from country singer Jamey Johnson, as well as Bone Crusher and Jermaine Dupri, and Jeremy Popoff of Lit.[5] Matt Bjorke of Roughstock gave the album a favorable review, saying that it was "an underground, indie rap album that recalls southern rapper Bubba Sparxxx."[6] The album did not enter the Billboard albums charts until 2009.

Ford was also a performer in the Country Music Association Music Festival in July 2009,[7] and wrote the theme song "Buck 'em" for the Professional Bull Riders association. He also appears as a guest vocalist on the track "Tailgatin'" on Cledus T. Judd's 2009 album Polyrically Uncorrect, a song which Ford wrote with Johnson and Popoff.[8]
