Colt Ford Announces Dates for 2012 Declaration of Independence Tour
Colt Ford is getting ready to throw the party of the year with his new Declaration of Independence Tour, set to kick off this spring. The tour will begin on April 6 in Albany, Ga. at the Sasser Flea Market and will conclude on June 9, when the trek stops at the Hilarosa ATV Park in Belvin, Ark.
In addition to Ford, fans will also be treated to the likes of fellow Average Joe’s Entertainment artists the Lacs, JB and the Moonshine Band, Rehab and Lenny Cooper.
Ford will not only entertain the crowds, but he is also giving back to his fans in a major way by making every city an all-ages show so kids young and old can enjoy a night to remember. “I have the most die-hard, rockin’ country music fans and they come in all ages,” explains Ford.
He adds, “When I look out in the crowds I see people anywhere from six to sixty years old. I really wanted to set up an all ages tour and create ‘family friendly’ zones to play for everyone that enjoys my music. This Declaration of Independence tour will offer just that … fun for the whole family and then some!”
In conjunction with the tour, Ford is wrapping up work on his fourth studio album, also titled ‘Declaration of Independence,’ which is set for release on May 1. The album’s release will coincide with Average Joe’s ‘Ultimate Trilogy’ package, which will also feature full albums by JB and the Moonshine Band (‘Beer for Breakfast’ on March 6) and the Lacs (’190 Proof’ on April 3).
General admission ticket packages for shows on the Declaration of Independence Tour will start at $25 and will go on sale Feb. 15 through etix.com. Fans who purchase pre-sale tickets for the dates of the trek will also receive an exclusive four-song EP with never-before-released cuts from all four acts featured in the tour’s lineup.
