Brantley Gilbert joins forces with Toby Keith and HARDY on “The Worst Country Song Of All Time,” available now, June 18th, on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new music.
There are few things better than a star-studded collaboration in country music. Social media blew up when fans found out that Brantley Gilbert was going to join forces with the legendary Toby Keith and one of our favorite rising stars, HARDY. The three extremely talented men officially dropped a song today that they never thought they actually would. “The Worst Country Song Of All Time” is officially out.
The idea all started when HARDY threw out the title at a write with co-writers Gilbert, Hunter Phelps, and Will Weatherly. Although all the men took it as a joke, they started throwing out line after line. Eventually, a song formed. “We were listening to the demo after we finished it, and I said to HARDY, “Man, if we get a wild hair and decide we’re actually going to cut this, would you be cool with cutting it with me?,” Gilbert shares of his collaborator in a recent press release. “I’ll never forget, he looked at me and he said, ‘Absolutely.’”
“I hate beer and honky-tonk women // And I don’t eat deer and I can’t stand fishing // I don’t know the words to Family Tradition // Folsom Prison or Walk The Line // And I think sweet tea is overrated // And all dirt roads were made for paving // Yeah this is the worst country song of all time”
Clearly, the men had something, when they received a seal of approval from Toby Keith, who is also featured on the track. “The Worst Country Song Of All Time” is one of those songs that only these trio of guys could actually release. It pokes fun at all the stereotypical ‘country boy’ things and flips it on its head. With some killer one-liners and a catchy beat, the song is a bop for sure!
We hope this collaboration will lead to even more collaboration between the talented men. Until then, make sure you jam to this one!
