Colt's blend of country music, rap and hip-hop influences have garnered him a very loyal following among fans wanting something new and different from the standard fare in the genres. His 2012 album Declaration of Independence, spent 58 weeks on the Billboard country albums chart, and featured collaborations with the likes of Keith Urban on a song called "She Likes," Duck Dynasty's Willie Robertson on "Cut 'Em All," Justin Moore on "Farm Life," country newcomer Chase Rice on "The High Life," Lee Brice on "Sip It Slow," and Jerrod Niemann on a song called "Crickets." Randy Houser, Walker Hayes and Daniel Lee appeared on the album as guest vocalists as well.
Jason Aldean scored a number one hit with a Colt Ford written tune, "Dirt Road Anthem," which Colt also recorded himself along with Brantley Gilbert on guest vocals. Colt also wrote the Professional Bullriders Association's theme song called "Buck 'Em," and appeared as a guest vocalist himself on Cledus T. Judd's 2012 album Polyrically Uncorrect.
Even though rapping is often considered "outside of the box" for country music fans, Colt points out that he grew up listening to the likes of Charlie Daniels, Hank Williams Jr., and others, who also featured their own style of "rap" in much of their music.
