Colt Ford Releases Music Video for “We The People” and Writes Essay Calling For Unity

Leading up to Independence Day, COLT FORD has released the video for his new single “We The People,” in which he interacts with the news media at a fun-and-loose press conference about the song and his new music.

At the beginning of the video, the influential and million-selling country artist says that the party-minded “We The People” song–now quickly gaining momentum at country radio–is about bringing Americans of all nationalities together to enjoy one another, embrace the music and have a good time. COLT delivers the message wearing an “Air Force One” jacket, flanked by a bodyguard at the podium. The media gathered in the press room is suspicious at first of his intentions, but they come over to his side as the anthemic song kicks in. Watch the video for “We The People”–which just world premiered at CMT and was directed by Ed Pryor for Hideout Pictures–here:http://averagejoesent.co/WeThePeople_Video

“The bottom line is I have a platform, as do all artists and entertainers, and we have a choice about what to do with it,” says COLT about the inspiration for the song and the video. “I don’t wanna be negative. I wanna be positive. I don’t wanna push my ideas of politics or my agenda. I wanna use my platform to unite people and show everyone we are not that different.”  To accompany the premiere of the video,  COLT has written an essay for CMT about what unites, not divides, Americans. It is now posted at the link above. As he writes, “We have so many things we can agree on, like how cancer sucks. We want clean air and water for the entire world. I promise that people from every background, upbringing, race and religion all want good things for our kids and for our families.”

“We The People” is the first single from COLT‘s upcoming album–his seventh–to be released in the coming months on Average Joes Entertainment, the Nashville label he co-founded and co-owns. At the press conference in the “We The People” video, the singer, songwriter, rapper, musician and performer says there are probably two albums on the way. Without revealing any details, COLT explains: “I do feel like I’ve grown and gotten better as an artist with every record, and this is no exception. The fans want the music and they want a lot and they want it fast so I’m gonna give it to them. The fans are who make it all possible.”
