Country singer-songwriter Colton James wasn’t able to make it to the NFR this year however he has a song that embodies what the rodeo world and country lifestyle is all about.  Colton was introduced to the country lifestyle at an early age. His father would turn on classics from artists like George Jones, Keith Whitley, and Merle Haggard in the truck on the way to the fishing hole together. James grew up watching his mother sing and his grandmothers play the piano and organ. As he became older, he knew he wanted to create music that was inspirational and down-to-earth.

His single “I Miss America” showcases that mentality. He wrote the song with Rick Dawson, owner of 2022 Kentucky Derby-winning thoroughbred Rich Strike. (watch for Britt & Rick’s interview coming soon!) This song is a patriotic single for the whole family, “I Miss America” will make you want to go riding around with friends, recalling simpler times.
