It's been 32 years since Lee Greenwood hit the top of the country charts with his smash single, "Dixie Road," and the hit maker is continuing to turn heads with a new, recreated bluegrass version of the song.  The singer/songwriter recently teamed up with Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road for a remake of the classic song, with a more prominent banjo and bluegrass vibe. The video for "Dixie Road" made its premiere yesterday on Country Rebel.

The new version of the song has already seen success internationally, when it was released as a single. The track finished in Hotdisc Countdown's 30 Most Popular Songs of 2015, securing the No. 18 spot. The countdown highlights the top country songs across Europe, and is recognized and published in Country Music People, Country Music & Dance, and Southern Country magazines. The dynamic pairing looks to capitalize on that momentum with the latest official video for the song.

Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road has been busy promoting their latest album, Country Grass, released via Pinecastle Records. In addition to the cut featuring Lee Greenwood, the star-studded project also features collaborations with Crystal Gayle, John Anderson, The Kentucky Headhunters, John Conlee, Eddy Raven and T.G. Sheppard, Marty Raybon, in addition to the late Jim Ed Brown and Lynn Anderson. The critically-acclaimed project has propelled the chart-topping band to new heights, securing features in top music outlets like Rolling Stone, The Boot, and Country Rebel, while also establishing a presence on their key genre websites like Bluegrass Today, The Bluegrass Situation, Cybergrass and many more.
