Colt Ford And Friends Benefit Concert

“Colt Ford and Friends” Team Up For A Good Cause!

Colt Ford’s beloved hometown of Athens, Georgia has been struck with an awful tragedy. After returning home from tour in late March, Ford got word of a shooting that shook the town pretty hard. Senior Police Officer Elmer “Buddy” Christian was murdered and Senior Police Officer Tony Howard was injured in the line of duty. The local celebrity decided to do his part and called up some friends. Jason Aldean, Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson, Mike Dekel, Edwin McCain, James Otto, and a few others will join Ford August 16 to raise some money for the families of the two men.

“I’ve known Tony for over 25 years, and both he and Buddy are and were pillars in this community, and I can’t stand by and not do something for their families during this difficult time due to such a brutal offense. I want to raise as much money as we can through the auction, performances, and donation links, so I can’t thank my friends enough for joining together with me for this great cause.” -Colt Ford
