James Lewis Carter Ford (probably June 24, 1923 – July 16, 2013) was an American blues musician, using the name T-Model Ford. Unable to remember his exact date of birth, he began his musical career in his early 70s, and continuously recorded for the Fat Possum label, then switched to Alive Naturalsound Records. His musical style combined the rawness of Delta blues with Chicago blues and juke joint blues styles.
The Ladies Man is T-Model Ford’s seventh album, and what makes it unique is that it’s entirely acoustic. Recorded at Planet Sound Studios in Wichita, Kansas, the album is the product of a live, one-take afternoon session with no overdubs and minimal mixing. T wanted to play acoustic guitar and have 100% control over the record and everyone involved in the project agreed he should do it the way he wanted. The result is pure T Model, with some newer young musician-friends playing along with him. I’m a ladies man. The ladies follow me everywhere. Some folks don’t like white folks

The well-documented Bad Man can be noted to, at times, simply have it bad, ma. Recorded during a 14 show US tour in 2010, the groove on this new studio album is pure T-Model Ford. Backed by his regular touring band GravelRoad, and with stellar guest appearances by Brian Olive and Matthew Smith, ''Taledragger'' is a perfect party album with the feel and honesty of a night at the juke joint. Despite a mild stroke in April 2010, T-Model still plays with an intensity and consistency that belies his age. Now 90-years old, the self proclaimed ''Boss of the Blues'' continues to show his strengths

T-Model Ford, a raw-sounding, mesmerizing guitarist and singer who was among the last of the old-time Delta bluesmen - and whose career was all the more noteworthy for his not having picked up a guitar until he was almost 60 - died on Tuesday at his home in Greenville, Miss. His other albums include Bad Man (2002), Jack Daniel Time (2008) and The Ladies Man (2010). Though he might well have begun his musical life sooner, starting late, Mr. Ford said, proved to be his saving grace. One night, I was playin’ the blues in Mississippi, singin’, ‘How many more years, baby, you gonna dog me around,’ he said in the Bergen Record interview.
