Colt Ford turns down the tempo in his latest video for 'Back,' with country superstar Jake Owen providing lead vocals for the slow-burning country-rap tune. Directed by Potsy Ponciroli, the clip features Ford going "back" to basics, returning to his hometown of Athens, Ga. to reminisce about the good old days.

'Back' is the first single from 'Declaration of Independence,' the singer's upcoming album, due out Aug. 7. “This album is very real and honest and by far the best record I’ve ever made,” Ford says about his fourth studio album (quote via ColtFord.com). “The last two records -- I stand up and cheer for them -- but I tried to make a lot of people happy on the last two records and I took the edge off of it. On this record I put the edge back on there.”

'Declaration of Independence' features collaborations with a number of country stars including Jason Aldean, Darius Rucker, Kix Brooks, Montgomery Gentry and Laura Bell Bundy.
