Colt ford Songs | Heartwrenching Country Song Shines Light on PTSD Crisis Facing Soldiers (VIDEO) | Country Music Videos

Those in country music have always been a big supporter of America's military. It's no different for Colt Ford, the singer that mixes rap with country music. Ford's song, "Workin' On" shines light on the ever increasing crisis facing our soldiers: post-traumatic stress disorder. At the beginning of the music video, it is solemnly stated that 20% of all soldier deployed in the last six years have been diagnosed with PTSD.

The country rapper released "Workin' On" in 2014 on his Thanks For Listening album. Though he is most known for his song "High Life" that he sings along with Chase Rice, "Workin' On" is a song that shouldn't be dismissed, but listened to and understood. The music video shows the troubles that a man faces after he returns home from war and how it affects his family life, but at the same time it gives hope. 

Colt found an additional way to spread awareness and help out. Ten percent of his "Workin' On" sales from iTunes will be donated to the Lone Survivor Foundation, which was created by Marcus Luttrell, retired U.S. Navy SEAL, whose story was depicted in the film Lone Survivor.

Even if you're not a fan of the new country rap genre, this is definitely a song that should be heard and a video that should be watched. Check it out. And as always, God bless our troops and their families.

Chasing after that dollar like it'll slow down my hurry
Settle all my worries when I get it in my wallet
Quit dippin' long enough to own a pair of jeans
That don't have a ring in the back left pocket
Laughing at myself, admitting when I'm wrong
That's what this good ol' boy's gonna go out workin' on

Workin' on coming to Jesus, kicking the bottle,
Wrestling with our roots,
Trying to turn off Mama's tears, and fill our Daddy's boots
Shutting off our pride, fixing bridges we burned, learning how to live and learn
Keeping our demons down and our trucks up and running
Loving them angels sitting pretty in the middle of 'em
Fighting with the man in the mirror til we gone
Yeah, that's what all us good ol' boys gonna go out workin' on
Gonna go out workin' on

Giving more forgiveness, picking battles worth choosing
Little less cussin' and losin' my temper and my tools
Dialin' down my restless, outgrowing my reckless
And my reputation for breaking hearts and rules
Realizin' what I got what I got before it's gone
That's what this good ol boy's gonna go out
Workin' on...

Workin' on coming to Jesus, kicking the bottle,
Wrestling with our roots,
Trying to turn off Mama's tears, and fill our Daddy's boots
Shutting off our pride, fixing bridges we burned, learning how to live and learn
Keeping our demons down and our trucks up and running
Loving them angels sitting pretty in the middle of 'em
Fighting with the man in the mirror til' we gone
Yeah, that's what all us good ol' boys gonna go out workin' on
Gonna go out workin' on

Owning up to my weakness, keeping it humble but strong
Doin' the best I can with this flesh and bone

Workin' on coming to Jesus, kicking the bottle,
Wrestling with our roots,
Trying to turn off Mama's tears, and fill our Daddy's boots
Shutting off our pride, fixing bridges we burned, learning how to live and learn
Keeping our demons down and our trucks up and running
Loving them angels sitting pretty in the middle of 'em
Fighting with the man in the mirror til we gone
Yeah, that's what all us good ol' boys gonna go out workin' on
Gonna go out workin' on
