Country rapper Colt Ford will take over SiriusXM’s “Music Row Happy Hour! With Buzz Brainard,” on The Highway Channel 59 this week to exclusively premiere his new single, “The High Life,” featuring Chase Rice. Fans can only hear the new single by tuning in to SiriusXM, but can download the track now on iTunes.
Written by Colt Ford, Chase Rice, Zach Crowell, Chris Cline and Jesse Rice, “The High Life” sings of regular folks having a good time and enjoying the blessings of life. Remaining true to an era gone by, the allure of the high life lives on today.
The Highway has been a champion of both Colt and Chase, individually,” says Tony Morreale, VP Promotion/Marketing of Ford’s label, Average Joes Entertainment. “When we heard this song, it was obvious – we had to roll with the Highway.”
“Chase actually played me the song the day he cut vocals on it,” adds John Marks, SiriusXM Senior Director of Country Programming. “Coincidentally, five minutes later I got the song from Colt and it was game on.”
“The High Life” will be one of the new tunes found on Ford’s Thanks For Listening album, set for release this summer. Look for Ford to hit the road this summer on select dates on Toby Keith’s “Shut Up and Hold On” tour. For tour dates and additional information, visit www.ColtFord.com.
