EDITORS’ NOTES

Colt Ford steps into the first song of his fourth album with defiance. “Answer to No One” opens brazenly as the former golf pro turned country/hip-hop star declares that he’s a "shotgun toter, Republican voter" over a stomping beat lifted from Queen’s “We Will Rock You.” Guest vocals from JJ Lawhorn give the chorus a catchy melody. An Auto-Tuned Jason Aldean does the same for the chorus in “Drivin’ Around Song,” which would be a ballad save for Ford’s thick drawled rhymes in the verses. The banjos and distorted guitars keep the refrain of “Ain’t Out of the Woods Yet” steeped in old-school Southern rock, with ample help from Montgomery Gentry on the singing parts. Fans of The White Stripes will notice a similarity between the guitars on “Dancin’ While Intoxicated (DWI)” and those of “Seven Nation Army” (LoCash Cowboys and Redneck Social Club contribute R&B singing and counter-rhymes). Similarly, “50/50” borrows the riff from Michael Jackson’s “Beat It”—which is appropriate, since Ford threatens to beat up city slickers in the album’s only guest-free song.

Auto tune?

Answer to no one is great. Why is Jason Andean auto tuned on Driving Around? Ridonculous

Colt Ford is talentless. This album proves it.

I can't say I have ever been a Colt Ford fan, but this reaches a new low. The music has no real sound to it. Colt Ford doesn't sing… its too monotone. And he doesn't rap. Its too slow. So that basically means you are listening to an autotuned album of some guy talking about drinking.
