On Friday, June 24, the country superstars shocked fans with the exciting news that they teamed up for a rowdy new duet that pays tribute to their southern roots.
“My new song #SonOfTheDirtySouth featuring @jellyroll615 is OUT NOW… Couldn’t wait to release this one….” Gilbert wrote on Instagram, shocking fans with the release of the new duet. “Y’all are gonna want to crank it #BGNation… Thanks to my man Jelly for blowing this one out of the water with me. 🥀”
“LETS GO! This is the anthem for the summer baby!” Jelly Roll added.
Throughout the song, the pair trade verses before Gilbert sings lead on the track’s chorus, putting his signature raspy vocals on full display over the rockin’, guitar-driven instrumental.
“‘Cause I’m a Son Of The Dirty South / Got to trippin’ / Mama washin’ out my dirty mouth / and pickin’ switches / I’m a hell raisin’ rebel that you better never tread on / gun-totin’, drinkin’, smokin’ / hoss that you can bet on / tatted up / I’m gassed up / I’m throwed off and I’m buck wild / loud and rowdy / I’m a Son Of The Dirty South / loud and rowdy / I’m a Son Of The Dirty South,” Gilbert sings on the tune’s chorus.
