Colt Ford has released his latest video, “Back,” featuring Jake Owen on the chorus. It’s the lead single from Colt’s new album, Declaration of Independence, due out August 7. Directed by Potsy Ponciroli and produced by Shannon Houchins, the video was filmed in Colt’s hometown of Athens, Georgia and stars Colt’s family.
“This song is so close to my heart,” Colt said. “It’s my life and I wanted to keep it real by having my whole family in the video. I am proud of the song and the visual we created. We went ‘back’ home and captured images from my mom’s house, the baseball field and roller rink I wrote about in the song. It’s a true representation of what this song is about and the visual portrays the sentiment perfectly.”
Declaration of Independence is now available for pre-order exclusively on iTunes. The standard 11-track and the Deluxe 15-track versions are on sale for $7.99 and $9.99 on iTunes until August 6. To pre-order the new album, click HERE.
“Back” was co-written by Colt, Shannon Houchins and Noah Gordan. The single was recently released to country radio and has sold more than 30,000 digital downloads in less than three weeks.
