Jason Aldean and Ludacris

Ludacris Debuts Country Collaboration at CMT Music Awards [Video]

Ludacris is going country. The Atlanta rapper headed to Nashville to debut his collaboration “Dirt Road Anthem” with country crooner Jason Aldean at the 2011 CMT Music Awards. The laid-back tune, co-produced by Big K.R.I.T., meshes the hip-hop and country worlds together for an out-of-the-box collabo not heard since Nelly and Tim McGraw’s genre-bending hit “Over and Over.”

“I love stretching the outer limits of where music can potentially go & collaborating w/ artists that nobody expects me to,” tweeted Luda, who declared, “History has been made!” during the live show.
