Country Rapper Colt Ford Appreciates His Fans and Is Thanking Them In a Big Way

Rap music and country music -- two distinctly different genres that don't go together, right? Maybe in the past, cuz, but it seems like the hybridizing of the two are happening more and more in recent years. Brad Paisley and LL Cool J collaborated on last year's track "Accidental Racist," Willie Nelson jammed out with Snoop Dogg on 2011's "Superman," or Florida Georgia Line working with Nelly on "Cruise."

And then there are country rappers like Colt Ford, who makes his home in the realm of hick-hop.
