Jason Aldean celebrates #1 with pals Colt Ford & Brantley Gilbert

Jason Aldean celebrated his 7th #1, “Dirt Road Anthem,” Tuesday afternoon on the rooftop of BMI. The song written by country artist Colt Ford and Brantley Gilbert, was originally performed by Colt. He apparently didn’t hesitate when he got the call from Jason wanting to cover it. “I have kids to put through college,” Colt remarked.

This was Colt’s first #1 and Brantley’s second (“My Kinda Party”). I caught up with the guys at the soiree to chat about how this song came about and if there will be more country rap songs in their future. Stay tuned to Yallwire for my interview.
