Ludacris and Country singer Jason Aldean perform their collaboration “Dirt Road Anthem” at the 2011 CMT Music Awards. Another Hip Hop artist played a part in making the song, as it was co-produced by Big K.R.I.T.

This is the first Country/Hip Hop collaboration since Nelly worked with Tim Mcgraw on the song “Over and Over.”

Luda took to twitter and addressed the collabo, here’s what he had to say: “I love stretching the outer limits of where music can potentially go & collaborating w/ artists that nobody expects me to,”
