    Dirt Road Anthem: Colt Ford vs. Jason Aldean

    I'm torn between the two versions after hearing Aldean in concert but also being a fan of Colt Ford, country music's foremost rapper. I have included links to both versions. I want to know what you all think.

    I am so glad you have posted this because I wondered myself. I am also torn and enjoy them both, but I think I am going with Colt Ford.

    I think Brantley Gilbert, who sings with Colt Ford on this, either wrote or co-wrote a few of the songs on this album for Jason Aldean.

    Wow...both versions are exceptional. I honestly don't know how someone is supposed to choose between the two. Just a testament to the groundbreaking and amazing things that country music is doing today.

    I much prefer the Colt Ford / Brantley Gilbert version. So far Jason Aldean has recorded three songs written by Gilbert. I don't think Aldean has written any of his hits. For those of you not familiar with Brantley Gilbert, check him out, especially "My Kind Of Crazy".

    I've been a fan of Brantley Gilbert's for a couple of years now. His song, "The Best of Me" really hits home. I'm a big fan of it at his stuff.

    For those of you who liked Colt Ford's version better, I would also recommend his song...
