That’s a Rap: ‘Dirt Road Anthem’ Hits No. 1

Posted in News on September 7, 2011

BMI toasted Colt Ford, Brantley Gilbert, and Jason Aldean at a party honoring the no. 1 hit “Dirt Road Anthem,” held August 30 on the rooftop of the company’s Music Row offices. Both successful recording artists in their own right, Ford and Gilbert topped the charts for the first time as a songwriting duo with the hip-hop-infused hit. Aldean is no stranger to no. 1’s: “Dirt Road Anthem” marks the seventh trip to the top for the star. The song will vie for Song of the Year at the CMA Awards in November.
