The song was co-written by Rodney Clawson and Chris Thompkins, and it is a track from their forthcoming studio album. It is more traditional country sounding than their previous singles, and the inclusion of steel guitar, coupled with their acoustic guitar-playing, and their moving vocals is infectious.
It even features Brian Kelley singing a few lines, which is a real treat. "You've mixed some sweat with it, Taken a shovel to it, You've stuck some crosses and some painted, Goal posts through it, You know you came from it," Kelley sings.
Their song's music video is poignant and it deserves more than just a passing glance.
"You know you came from it, And some day you'll return to it," Tyler Hubbard sings towards the end, closing the song on a haunting note.

The Verdict
While Florida Georgia Line may have been criticized lately for their music (which critics have classified as bro-country), this is new song that will certainly prove their naysayers wrong. It shows a more sophisticated side to their artistry and they allow their fans to see dirt through a different perspective, and see the impact that it has had on their lives. If their upcoming CD consists of more songs of this caliber, then it will be their finest musical work to date. "Dirt" garners 5 out of 5 stars.
