Colt Ford Insists He’s the ‘Lucky’ One to Record With ‘Cool Artists’ Like Keith Urban
Colt Ford and Keith Urban have crossed paths many times. The two were both scheduled to perform during the first night of the 2015 Taste of Country Festival, and they've recorded a song together called "She's Like."
Ford stopped by to chat with Taste of Country at Hunter Mountain before his rockin' set at the 2015 ToC Festival, and he couldn't go without discussing his good pal, Mr. Urban. The two cut a song for Ford's fifth album Thanks for Listening. That's not the only collaboration Ford has on that album, however — he's surrounded by talented individuals, and he insists he's the "lucky" one to collaborate with them.
"I've been lucky to record with so many cool artists that are friends of mine," the Georgia native tells ToC. "I've been wanting to work with Keith for a long time and I finally ... you know, you just gotta find the right song is what it boils down to."
When Ford found "She's Like," it was music to Urban's ears.
"When I played him that song, before the second chorus started, he was already singing along. I was like, 'Yes! I got him. He likes it.' So he recorded it and it's really cool. It's a cool song."
Unfortunately, Urban wasn't able to join Ford to perform the song live at ToC Fest, but Ford did have a couple of other guests join him on stage. He invited LoCash for a rendition of the very popular song he had a hand in writing, "Dirt Road Anthem."
