Jason Aldean Debuts “Dirt Road Anthem” Video on CMT

Jason Aldean debuted his new music video, “Dirt Road Anthem,” on CMT and CMT.com on Monday morning (June 13). Written by Colt Ford and Brantley Gilbert, the track comes from Aldean’s latest album, My Kinda Party, and blends his country music and rap influences. “I think any time that you’re making a record, you want to continue to branch out and try new things,” Aldean told CMT Insider. “You don’t want to keep trying to record the same album over and over and over or the same kind of song over and over and over. I think it starts to get old if you do that. So finding new ways to kind of push yourselves and find new avenues to go down every now and then is something that keeps it fresh and fun. [It] keeps the fans and radio — and even us for that matter — on our toes a little bit. I love doing that stuff. This is one of those songs that I think definitely allowed us to step out of the box a little bit and try something new.”
