It is released because of it's involvement with Tim McGraw's 'Tim McGraw and Friends' album.
Now, to the review.
One of the hardest things for me to do as a country fan is explain why I don't hate Colt Ford. So I won't bother. I'll just simply say that I don't hate Colt Ford.
This is his most enjoyable single to date. The lyrics tell a story of a teenager's life, and the up's and down's of it.
Such as: 'It ain't rained in a month, Mama just took a job, part time at the five and dime, four times as hard' and 'quarterback, first string, gave my highschool ring to the prettiest little girl, green eyes and red hair, think I might ask her to marry me one night at the fair'.
The song finishes off with the narrarator moving back to his hometown, and back to the country. I'm willing to forget that part ever hapenned because of the strength of the rest of the song.
Ford does an excellent job rapping the verse, but McGraw deserves a bulk of the credit, as he does an excellent job on the chorus.
Will this become a hit? Not likely. But the road of "Twisted" and "Back" is one I would recommend Ford go further down.
