Lady Gaga Releases “Born This Way (Country Road Version)”

Lady Gaga’s “country version” of “Born This Way,” was released digitally Tuesday (April 5), and a portion of the profits generated from its sales will benefit the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), a national education organization working to ensure safe schools for all students, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity. Lady Gaga premiered the song at this year’s Grammy Awards show and released the initial version — a thumping, electronic mix — on Feb. 11. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and sold 1 million downloads in just five days. Last month, she unveiled “Born This Way (Country Road Version),” a new mix that included the addition of harmonica and mandolin.
