GEORGIA NATIVES JASON ALDEAN AND LUDACRIS’
2011 CMT MUSIC AWARDS PERFORMANCE OF “DIRT ROAD ANTHEM”
AVAILABLE ON ITUNES TODAY
 
Nashville, Tenn. – June 9, 2011 – Last night at the 2011 CMT Music Awards, top nominee Jason Aldean and rapper Ludacris brought the house down with an unexpected collaboration of Aldean’s current Top 10 hit “Dirt Road Anthem.”  The remix of the song is now available on iTunes for download.  Additionally, the performance video will be available on Mon., June 13.

“Ludacris absolutely killed his verse of the song,” said Aldean.   “He name checks Kenny Rogers and talks about drinking cold beer…that’s pretty country, if you ask me!   I think Luda said it best last night at the close of the song when he told the crowd ‘History has been made.’  It really did feel like one of those one-in-a-lifetime television moments, and the CMT Music Awards was the perfect show for it.  The fans were crazy!”

Aldean’s “Dirt Road Anthem” is currently the No. one song on the iTunes Country Songs chart, and it plowed its way into the Top 10 on the radio charts this week.  The fan-favorite track is the third single off MY KINDA PARTY that has already spawned two smash hits ( “Don’t You Wanna Stay” with Kelly Clarkson and “My Kinda Party).  The album hit big out of the gate, setting a record as the highest first week debut by a male artist in 4 years, and the now PLATINUM disc it has remained planted at the top of the chart since its Nov. release.
