In a year of touring throughout the West with the likes of Dierks Bentley, Dwight Yoakam, Mark Chesnutt, Alan Jackson, David Nail, Gloriana, Sunny Sweeney, Phil Vassar, Steve Azar, John Rich, Sebastian Bach, Eden's Edge and Kenny Rogers... what better way to finish off 2011 than a December run with Hick-Hop artist COLT FORD.
It's as if Colt Ford knew we'd be hangin' together. His latest CD release "Every CHANCE I Get" hit shelves this past May and has been on an iTunes tear ever since! The CD itself has featured artists on it including Eric Church, Luke Bryan, Nappy Roots, Nic Cowan, Josh Thompson, Trent Tomlinson, Craig Morgan and Charlie Daniels. It's an All-Star event... not just a CD.
About two weeks ago I got a call from my agent at William Morris Endeavors who said the Country Rapper Colt Ford was comin' through the Pacific Northwest in mid-December. Now, Colt and I aren't on the same roster (he's on Buddy Lee Attractions), but sometimes when acts fit together (or they think it'd be mutually beneficial) they put together deals on the fly like this. Needless to say, when Barrett asked if I'd be interested in doin' shows with Colt Ford, I was grinnin' ear to ear.
As of right now, the "dates and states" stand at:
Thursday - 12.08.11 - Salt Lake City, UT - The Rail Event Center
Friday - 12.16.11 - Springfield, OR - Whiskey River Ranch
Saturday - 12.17.11 - Portland, OR - The Ponderosa
Sunday - 12.18.11 - Spokane, WA - The Knitting Factory
Ticket links are available at http://www.ChanceMcKinney.com/tour.html for those who want to catch Colt n' Chance out on the road... in the middle of December... workin' hard through the holiday season... tryin' to bring quality entertainment... weathering the Pacific Northwest storms, poor road conditions, cold nights... (yeah, I'm milkin' it at this point.)
A quick "thank you" to all of those who've made this dream a reality since the CMT win almost 2 years ago... I really appreciate all you've done (and continue to do) for me!
P.S. There will be more details on:
