Colt Ford
ACM Award Nominee Colt Ford to Headline

Colt Ford

A father, a husband, a small-town dweller, a lover, a partier Colt Ford takes every opportunity to showcase his many different roles.

Ford embodies the curious experience of growing up in the new south. Traditionally Country but now with hip-hop and R&B influences- part of the hick-hop movement although that doesn't give him full credit. His songs and stylings lean into classic rock and Southern rock territory. He's plenty country, the type of person who can fit y'all twice into the same sentence. But hes also a little rock 'n' roll, with the rock songs and metal chain that dangle from his side.

"I have the greatest fans in the world," Ford said. "They've invested in me, and I look forward to the opportunity to pay them back by giving them the rockingest show I can."



BOOMTOWN is comprised of some of the most talented musicians and entertainers in the Mid-West.

With a fan base that is constantly expanding, a song list that is ever changing and the desire to win your hearts over with great live music BoomTown is certainly making waves across the region.

Once you've visited BOOMTOWN you'll never want to leave.


Levi Riggs

Levi Riggs - His name alone resonates with strong country music influence.

When respected music critic, Tim Brouk, writes, "If Levi Riggs' voice was placed in the NFL draft, it would be selected in the first round," people take notice! When they hear Levi sing, they want more! When they see him perform, they are convinced -- Levi Riggs has tremendous star potential!

"I love to connect with my audience through my songwriting and energy. I always give my best effort at every show to perform at the highest level possible."

Thank You!
