Are Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber taking a page from Rihanna's book in the hopes of landing a spot in the Country Music Awards' line-up? Probably not, but both have recently released countrified versions of their hit songs. First, Gaga surprised fans over Twitter on Thursday saying, "Surprise Monsters!: 'Born This Way' (The Country Road Version) will be released tomorrow [Friday]..." The original version of the song was released in February and first performed during the Grammy's...after she hatched from an egg, of course.
Have a listen to the new version here and let us know what you think.
Now a little something for the Beliebers out there: your boy is also dabbling in the genre himself. The 17-year-old heart-throb just released his video for "That Should Be Me," the remix track he recorded with Grammy-winning Rascal Flatts. The song is off his top-selling "Never Say Never - The Remixes" album.
