Jason Farris Brown (born in Athens, Georgia), known professionally as Colt Ford, is an American country music artist and former professional golfer. He has released two albums via his own Average Joe's label, and has charted three singles on the Hot Country Songs charts. Ford has also written a theme song for Professional Bull Riders, and has worked with John Michael Montgomery, Montgomery Gentry, and Cledus T. Judd, among others.

Jason Farris Brown was born and raised in Athens, Georgia; he is a graduate of Clarke Central High School. He was a professional golfer, playing in one Nationwide Tour but mostly serving as a golfing instructor. Later, he turned his interests to music, taking influence from country music and hip hop.

Assuming the stage name Colt Ford, he released his debut album, “Ride Through the Country,” on December 2, 2008. This album included the singles "No Trash in My Trailer" (a cover of a Gene Watson song) and "Ride Through the Country" (a duet with John Michael Montgomery), the latter of which did not chart until the week of October 10, 2009 when it debuted at #57 on the Hot Country Songs chart.

He also appeared on a rap remix of Montgomery Gentry's late-2008 Number One single "Roll with Me." Ford's debut album also has guest appearances from country singer Jamey Johnson, as well as Bone Crusher and Jermaine Dupri, and Jeremy Popoff of Lit. The album did not enter the Billboard albums charts until 2009.

Ford co-wrote and originally recorded the song "Dirt Road Anthem" for his debut album “Ridin' Through the Country,” which was later covered by Brantley Gilbert on his 2010 album “Halfway To Heaven,” and again by Jason Aldean on his album “My Kinda Party,” also from 2010. Ford wrote the theme song "Buck 'em" for the Professional Bull Riders association. He also appears as a guest vocalist on the track "Tailgatin'" on Cledus T. Judd's 2009 album “Polyrically Uncorrect,” a song which Ford wrote with Johnson and Popoff. Ford's second studio album, “Chicken & Biscuits,” was released in April 2010, following the release of its title track.
