Colt Ford has released "Back," the lead single from his forthcoming fourth album, Declaration of Independence. The track features an assist by Jake Owen.
Ford wrote the song—with help from Shannon Houchins, Noah Gordon and Mike Hartnett—which looks back at his youth:
"This is such a personal song for me. It's my life. It's about my past and my future. I talk about friends that are no longer here and I talk about the way I grew up."
"To have one of my best friends in the music business, Jake Owen, be a part of this song with me is a big deal. It's a song that I wanted a friend of mine to be a part of and Jake is just on fire and one of my favorite singers. He captured the emotion that I had in this song. I think everyone, when they hear this song, will want to call home," he added.
Declaration of Independence, distributed on the Average Joe's Entertainment label, is due August 7.
