Though he's been a part of the country music scene for several years now, and is just about to release his fourth studio album, Colt Ford has never been to WE Fest -- but he will soon have an opportunity to remedy that.


"It's is going to be my first visit to WE Fest this year," Ford said in a telephone interview Thursday. "I was supposed to be there one other time, but something happened with one of my kids."
