Pitbull Turns Country in Collab with Luke Bryan, Trace Adkins
It’s Mr. 305 (AKA Mr. Worldwide), but it’s also Luke Bryan and Trace Adkins? That’s right, the trio has teamed up just in time for summer with their single “Where the Country Girls At.” To be honest with you guys, it’s kind of a banger. It’s got all the classic elements of a honky-tonk hit: referencing girls in daisy dukes, cowboy boots, drinking, and nascar. I’d say this song is as country as it gets. The only difference is, one of the biggest Latin Hip-Hop stars in the game, Pitbull, took up a verse on the track.
Luke Bryan and Pitbull is Random But it Works
I know what you guys must be thinking “how random is this?” Believe me, we are on the same page! But this is actually not Pitbull’s first attempt in the country music scene. In 2016, he teamed up with Keith Urban and Nile Rodgers for “Sun Don’t Let Me Down.” The Miami native just couldn’t seem to keep away from the country scene and collaborated with The Voice judge Blake Shelton just last year. Yet another hit sure to get you stomping your boots.
The artists took to social media to promote today’s music release. Before heading out on tour this year, Bryan clearly wants to hype his fans.
“Excited to be joining @TraceAdkins and @Pitbull on ‘Where The Country Girls At’ coming this Friday, June 25th. Pre-save it here.”
Trace Adkins posted to Instagram, “NEW MUSIC THIS FRIDAY! ‘Where The Country Girls At’ will be your party song of the summer! Featuring the unforgettable trio of Trace Adkins, @Pitbull & @LukeBryan. Pre-save now to be the first to hear it! Link in bio.”
Other Genre-Fluid Tracks
It may seem a bit strange to see an artist like Pitbull on a country track, but he is not the first to blur the lines in genre. In 2013 Hip-Hop artist Nelly remixed “Cruise” the hit song by Florida Georgia line. Nelly actually reunited with the duo just last week and released “Lil Bit.” Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus is another example of the magic that comes from a genre-fluid track.
Collaborations like these definitely spark interest in fans. While they are random for sure, I can say that the curiosity alone is enticing as an avid music listener. If Mr. 305 can transplant himself into a country music hoedown, then I think anything is possible.
