NASHVILLE, TN (April 1, 2022) – Today, Kidd G and BRELAND debut the official music video for their smash hit “Dirt Road Remix”. The video, which stars both young talents perfectly encapsulates the nostalgia-soaked hometown feeling of the beloved record. Last week, the reinterpretation of the fan-favorite hit song arrived to instant acclaim from BILLBOARD, noting the two as “two of country music’s most buzzed-about newcomers”. In today’s post-genre musical landscape, the two fresh new faces of Country music come together to create the kind of song that will find fans rooted in the genre and beyond.

“Dirt Road” first appeared on Kidd G’s 2020 debut EP, serving as his first true foray into Country music. The original song found the Georgia native seamlessly spitting bars atop an acoustic palette that evoked the feeling of driving freely down a backroad. “Dirt Road Remix” maintains the same sonic fabric, with Kidd G lamenting alongside BRELAND about a hot-and-cold relationship that he can’t get out of his mind. BRELAND vocals add a new layer to the track as he raps, before singing “they tell me that home is where the heart is, but I’ve been traveling. Country fixed my heart when it first broke / That’s why I’m thanking God for the dirt road.”
“Dirt Road Remix” is Kidd G’s second 2022 release, following January’s “Left Me” featuring YNW BSlime. The uptempo track similarly demands listeners’ full attention as a vulnerable heartbreak anthem. And Kidd G certainly has all eyes and ears on him. DOWN HOME BOY generated more than 15 million streams on Spotify alone and earned high NYT praise as “the year’s best country debut album.” The reception was so warm that a deluxe version of the album arrived in late 2021 with four new tracks.
