8 Cover Songs Made Famous by Jason Aldean


"My Kinda Party"

And so begins the relationship between Jason Aldean and Brantley Gilbert. Both musicians are now part of the mainstream country sound currently coming out of the Georgia clay, but in 2010 when Aldean released his album My Kinda Party, Gilbert was still working to make a name for himself. And there is probably no better way to break out onto the scene than to have one of country music's hottest artists not only sing a song you wrote, but title his album after it as well.

"Dirt Road Anthem"

Next up on the Jason Aldean and Brantley Gilbert playlist is "Dirt Road Anthem", which was written by Gilbert and fellow Georgia comrade Colt Ford. It has been performed separately and in unison by all three artists. Plus, the original duet of the song with Ford and Gilbert has also become popular.

"He does his own thing with them," Gilbert told Up on the Sun last year when asked about the covers Jason Aldean does of his songs. "I think he did a great job with it. He's a super-nice dude; I have a lot of respect for Jason."

Aldean's version of "Dirt Road Anthem" has since gone quadruple platinum and he has now done another rendition of the hit with Ludacris.

Jason Aldean is scheduled to perform on Sunday, April 13, at Country Thunder 2014 in Florence.
