Bruising Albums from Big Smo and Brantley Gilbert

I wrote a piece for Splice Today about two new country albums from Big Smo and Brantley Gilbert. Smo’s a rapper, Gilbert isn’t–but Gilbert co-wrote a country rap song back in 2008 with Colt Ford. Listen to the original version of that song, “Dirt Road Anthem,” below. As I write in my piece, one of the interesting things about the song is that it sounds like it could be on an album from the R&B singer Babyface or the southern rapper David Banner.
