Colt Ford Could Earn First Billboard 200 Top Ten Debut
Colt Ford could have his first Billboard 200 top ten album with "Declaration of Independence." Billboard.com says the country rapper's disc is expected to have first-week sales surpassing the 20-thousand mark, which could be enough to land the project in the top tier of the all-genre chart. Ford's last two albums both reached the top 40 on the Billboard 200, and were top ten discs on the Country Albums chart. His 2010 effort "Chicken & Biscuits" peaked at number eight on the country chart and at 28 on the Billboard 200, while 2011's "Every Chance I Get" rose to number three on the country list and to 26 on the Billboard 200. "Declaration of Independence" includes the single "Back," featuring guest vocals from Jake Owen.
