Granger Smith and Christian rap artist Lathan Warlick teamed up to remix “That’s Why I Love Dirt Roads” and now they are releasing a studio version in response to a week of civil unrest in America.

Smith totally reimagined the song, which he first introduced seven months ago. Smith explains how he and Warlick came together on Instagram, saying that his wife shared how the singer had been adding new lyrics to popular songs.

The timing of the release corresponds to the recent protests about race and racial inequality being had nationwide since George Floyd’s death.
