“Drivin’ Around Song” by Colt Ford

If country music is the home of storytelling songwriters, then it’s a bit puzzling as to why Colt Ford isn’t more widely accepted on country radio.

With new single “Drivin’ Around Song,” which gets a helping vocal from guest Jason Aldean, Colt paints a picture of small-town life where Saturday night was spent cruising the loop that circled the town square and the local drive-thru, and Sunday was spent next to your family in a church pew.

Lyrically, it is as radio-friendly as any current smash celebrating the glories of tailgates and moonshine, but apparently the recitative nature and the driving beats are off-putting to some. Which is a shame.

Still, the reality is that “Drivin’ Around Song” has been played well over a million times on streaming-music service Spotify and downloaded more than 200,000 times since its release. So somebody is digging it.
