GaGa Goes Country! Check Out Born This Way…The Country Road Version!

| Filed under: Music MinuteLady GaGa

Different orchestration, but just as powerful!

Lady GaGa took to Twitter last night to debut her latest, genre-crossing reinterpretation of her smash single, Born This Way, simply known as the 'Country Road Version,' and we have to admit, we're pretty obsessed!

Check it out (above)!

We love how this stripped down version really emphasizes the strength of her voice, as well as the message of the lyrics! And the extra verse toward the end is a nice touch!

Such an unexpected - but surprisingly fitting - direction for you to take, Mother Monster! We're so impressed!

    YUCK.. this is horrible

    seriously…. Lady Gaga is starting to piss me off with her arrogant attitude.

  2. 2

    Way to go, Gaga. It's awesome. I hope there are more surprises!

  3. 3

    Gaga went country? I wish she went away.

  4. 4

    strength of her voice…? lol.

  5. 5

    I love this version better and I do not even like country music usually!

  6. 6

    What a mockery of country music. I can't stand her.

  7. 7

    omg cant that attention whore take a vaction for 5 fucking minutes and let that rhinoplasty heal. her album is months away and bitch is still touring her last piece of shit. her writing is weak. people are sick of her mug. she seriously needs to fuck right off.

  8. 8

    I really like it actually. I prefer it to the original (:

    Re: OneLove5 – That is because this isn't country music. This is just bad. Country music stars normally have talent.

  11. 11

    Nope… Still just an Express Yourself rip off

  12. 12

    I listened to it and couldn't get over the fact how bad it is. Not her style and indeed, overplayed.

  13. 13

    no video? are you being secretive?

  14. Lips says – reply to this


    what a embarassment to country music. lady gaga stick to pop music.

  15. 15

    Re: richard67 – The very strong sales on both iTunes and (strangely at these times) physical CD of her single (which is #1 at Billboard for 6 weeks already) beg to differ with you. She might be not your cup of coffee, but she is for many many many people…

  16. 16

    Of course you're impressed, Perez. You're no doubt impressed with her used tampons, the shits she takes, and the mountains of cocaine she blows up that huge nose of hers. She becomes more of a fame-whoring joke every day, and Mario, you're shoving her down that path because you're making us sick to death of her. Gaga = talentless hack.

  17. 17

    Really perez it does not show off her voice she sounds like a dragqueen her voice is deep when she sings its not soft like a womans voice should be. You can say what you want but lady gaga will never be able to sing like xtina or jennifer hudson like you seem to think im not saying she cant sing she just has a basic singing voice nothing unique or speacial.maybe you should tell lady gaga to quit smoking cigs and smoking weed and drinking,and lay off the lines of coke.

  18. 18

    I'm so tired of this kunt. Already remaking her songs. She did the same thing with her first album. Left it out there for 3 years and just remade old songs to suck more money out of the gays. Her 2nd single hasn't even dropped yet and she's fucking milking the gays again. At least it's not my money this nasty chick with a dick is taking.

  19. 19

    Re: Samtra – Well it sounds country, more old country than new.

  20. 20

    Re: mediterranean – Yeah…Milli Vanilli had a smash record too…Does that mean the music buying public was right about them, too?
    There's tons of music that is MUCH better than GagGag that gets little to no recognition. Doesn't mean it's bad music.

  21. 21

    IMO, this is better than the original but it's NOT country. Not even close. The lyrics are still lame and simple enough to have been written by a child. She should lay off the drugs when she's writing…js.

  22. 22

    It's AMAZING! You Asswipes stay pressed! >:)

  23. 23

    gratuitous…and NOT country… or at least not USA country.

  24. 24

    I thought she was going to change her vocals to fit the genre but this is just a resemblance of country music on top of her original vocals its not even real country. Just seems like another way to make money of the same song.

  25. 25

    Oh no. Sorry but I think it's awful.

  26. 26

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – LOL! You are hilarious. I love Gaga but your comments are enjoyable.

  27. jham says – reply to this


    I like the harmnoica and the additional lyrics. I also, as always, love her voice and her message. It's a little more like Kid Rock "country" I'd love to hear a fully on Hank Williams Jr. country version, lol. But I like it.

  28. 28

    Re: La Garse – lmfao stay mad! I LOL'd when you called her talent-less. Bitch, go to sleep! Hahaha

  29. 29

    IT IS HORRIBLE! This is an insult to country music and she basically took an average song and made it worse but did not make it country. Perez you have become such a wet noodle, you are afraid to have a opinion on anything. LADY GAG

  30. 30

    Is it just me or does this sound like the Ally Mcbeal theme-Searching My Soul by Vonda Sheppard?

  31. 31

    Born this Way is NOT a good song. Why would she want to do a country version too? Ridiculous!

  32. 32

    This is not country or real country. Good country has feelings.

  33. jham says – reply to this


    Upon second listen - it's clear that some sections of the songs (like the chorus) were not re-recorded and were taken from the original version. I knew there was something just not fully cohesive about it. It's good and I like it, but it's not country genre. It's Kid Rock/studio produced country/rock/pop. Which is cool.

  34. 34

    Um… So i think the new Lady Gaga album is just gonna be 10 remixed versions of 'Born This Way'. She has 4 remixed versions of the song out now. Isn't that enough? Sad when artists run out of ideas & creativity. She should retire now.

  35. 35

    OMG…just because you add an electric guitar and a harmonica doesn't make it country! I'm sure all the country greats are laughing their a$$es off. As usual, Perez, you are so far up her a$$ you have lost all judgement on her music.

  36. 36

    Re: T.j. Germanotta – Oooohhh … what a big man with a big mouth. I suppose it makes up for your teeny weeny peeny. Nobody likes a lame-brain nobody, so go away, GERManotta.

  37. M: says – reply to this


    EPIC FAIL…. COUNTRY IS HORRIBLE SHE RIED TO CREAT MUSIC ALBU FROM AMDONNA LIKE TELL ME SONG OR AMERICAN PIR. but for madonna it works.not for u gaga ur not a cow girl…. ab more thuis new single is never on the radios outside usa.ppl forget this wannabe already.wake up perez.u failed

  38. M: says – reply to this


    wannabe wannabe wannabe madonan did it already sweetheart she is a faileur

  39. 39

    Gaga meets The Judds, I like it.
    Re: robert26101 – "soft like womans voice should be"…. could you be anymore boring and lame.

  40. 40

    Re: MJJ – That's exactly what I thought!

  41. 41

    what a joke…lady gaga is seriously starting to piss me off, not to mention this song sucks so baddd

  42. 42

    Re: clemensnarls
    "She has 4 remixed versions of the song out now. Isn't that enough? Sad when artists run out of ideas & creativity."
    Except the majority of remixes are done by DJs and not by the artists.

  43. 43

    Re: M:
    You are really far-reaching if you think this sounds like any of the Madonna songs that you listed.

  44. 44

    Wow, still copying Madonna. Unbelievable. Remember, the 2000 album, Music? It was electronica/country music. Really cool vibe to the album, but had country overtones in some songs.

  45. 45

    I'm really tired of this song. Seriously, release another song already. I know she's working on getting 'Judas' released, but for fuck's sake, enough with 'Born This Way'.

  46. 46

    Re: jones_po – How is making a new version of a song an "arrogant attitude"?

  47. 47

    lmao!!! wow she sucks

  48. 48

    Why are Gaga fans so threatened by negative comments? Agree to disagree, dude.

    SMH, i swear to god ya'll are like 12 year olds. So what if you think she the BEST SINGER EVERRRR!!!!!

    STFU already with the backlash. It's unnecessary, over-used, and downright ridiculous.

    FYI: I don't hate Lady Gaga, she used to be such a wonder in my eyes, however lately has made some fans feel unrecognized (since all she really sings/talks about these days are about the gay community). HELLO? there are other types of fanbases out there. She focuses some much on gay pride, which is great, but seems to have let that take ahold of her music.

  49. 49

    Re: marieclare89 – Yeah, I agree. I used to be so much more into her. I still like her music, except for lately, when a certain song just keeps getting shoved in my face. I realize that she's all for gay rights, but she has other fans that are not gay. I don't know if she remembers that or not.

  50. 50

    everyone admits this is horrible perez. dont lie to yourself.

  51. 51

    Im not a Gaga fan but I like her music. I like this country version.

  52. 52

    Wow…ok, I turned this on and my dog literally left the room. What does that tell you?

  53. 53

    Re: catlover – Knowing her she will milk this song until a new CD comes out.. She supposedly still has an accoustic version coming.. What's next Gaga? A spanish version??? *rolls eyes*

  54. 54

    Re: La Garse – LMFAO!!! yezzzz! Stay mad bitch! STAY MAD!

  55. 55

    Of course U are obsessed!! !Everything this bitch does is amazing for you.
    Ha! This shit is not even country!! The original version is better! You know… I am getting tired of Lady Gaga!! She just needs to go away and come out with some original shit!!!!

  56. 56

    Re: katiekg88 – no… that would be taylor swift

  57. 57

    umm.. this is seriously weak. it doesn't sound country in the slightest.

  58. Zoom says – reply to this


    Furthest thing from country music,but so is Kid Rock,Sheryl Crow,Jewell,Arron Lewis,Uncle Kracker,Taylor Swift and about 90% of everything else that is called country music these days.It's a pop song done in a different pop way.Sad.

  59. 59

    Love this, she is so flexible. So going to download it to my phone.

  60. 60

    Re: M: – Madonna didn't invented country.
    BTW, if you think Madonna is all original then you should google "madonna the thief", there is a site proving Madonna isn't all that original either just because you are saying that she is.
    Both are just as good and copies just as much.

  61. 61

    The country music and her voice do not fit together at all… I was really excited to hear this! but its just plain odd sounding.

  62. 62

    sucks . . . i sucks, just like britney's, and madonna's shitty music

  63. 63

    I am absolutely sick to DEATH of this "Mother Monster" bullshit! She's gotten so damn full of herself and for what purpose? Her voice isn't exactly spectacular, better than Britney of course, but when she's more into her appearance and how crazy she can be than anything else. Her second "album" was just remixes of her own album. Gee, how original. By keeping herself in our faces 24/7, it's just making some people sick.

  64. 64

    I loved the song

  65. 65

    Re: suzyelizabeth
    Actually her 2nd album was comprised of 8 new songs that never appeared on any previous LG album. There were no remixes, even though a remix album did follow, but that was not considered a proper album.

  66. 66

    Re: Revolennon – He needs a pee.

  67. 67

    funny how the vast majority of the people who comment on gaga news are haters who say she sucks and she needs to go away, yet they take the time to post hate comments on her stuff and keep up with her daily activity just to post a hater comment, fail more at life haters

  68. 68

    i feel like she is alienating a lot of fans by focusing so MUCH on gay rights and crap. i mean i'm gay and i USED to lover her, but at a certain point its like can you please be about the music again and stop doing shit for attention. i loved The Fame, way back in 2008…and now she is all about shock value and her crazy wardrobe and gay gay gay…you've lost a fan here, Gaga.

  69. 69

    You have to be joking.

  70. 70

    I am so in love with lady gaga. This song is so powerful and has such an important meaning. I love you GAGA!!!

  71. 71

    LMFAO the "strength" of her voice? This isnt even country music. And Perez is SO biased he would never say he doesnt like a lady gaga song.

  72. 72

    This version sounds 100x better, don't get me wrong I love the original but this one sounds more soulful (=

  73. 73

    people are such haters. get the FUCK OVER IT PEOPLE YOU KNOW THIS IS GOOD YOU JUST HAVE TO HATE….. When creativity felt cheap and bought, she came along to stir the pot.

  74. 74

    Re: apabloisforever

    I completely agree!!

  75. 75

    sorry, but it sucks.

  76. 76

    Re: perminator

    dumbest comment ever. just sayin

  77. 77

    i'd like to give out cheese for all you whining haters…..you crack me up. cant you come up with better stuff???? how is gaga arrogant or using the gay community????? what is your star doing to help???? GOOD or BAD you care what GAGA does and you are talking about it. so keep on hating. GAGA LOVE YOU - YOU ARE AMAZING!! AND THIS COUNTRY VERSION IS awesome!!!

  78. 78

    The original song sucks, and this is even worse! I used to like gaga in her poker face days but I really cant stand her and her arrogant attitude she just developed. Ugh!

  79. 79

    This is NOT country music by any means. Just because they threw in some harmonica and wailing guitar rifts does NOT make any song country. Lady Gaga needs to stick to pop music because this really is an embarrassment to country music. I hope country radio doesn't play it.

  80. 80

    lol strength of her voice? Seriously what kind of drugs do you have to be on to even think that?

    Let's have Gaga sing opera and then you can tell us how strong her voice is Perez. Silly fool.

  81. 81

    Perez you're so late on everything.

  82. IVIV says – reply to this


    I'd rather listen to the theme song for "Roseanne". What a surprise, just another way for her to make more money off the mindless drones. Are REAL country artists offended? Born This Way is the featured video on YouTube all the time, I see ads for it on every other fucking site, ITunes sent out emails for it, J.Lo's song was supposed to be #1 but miraculously that didn't happen, hmmm, it's amazing what money can do.

  83. 83

    Are you kidding me?!?!! THIS is brilliant!

  84. 84

    Re: IVIV – Haha! It does sound like the Roseanne theme song. (I like it though).

  85. 85

    Of course Lady Gaga isn't do a country song the way you people one should be made. That's why it's called the Country Road version rather than the country version. She never it said it was country.
    re=5654481]Re: M:[/re]
    Never mind that k.d lang, Sheryl Crow, Paula Cole, LaToya Jackson, Vanity, Imani Coppola, Olivia Newton-John (among countless others) have done the whole cowgirl thing long before Madonna.

  86. 86

    Re: marieclare89
    You think that's the dumbest comment ever? Do you not read your own? Just asking? :)

  87. 87

    I like gaga but stop milking this song and bring us Judas already. This version would be better if she didn't sing in a fake country accent, girlfriend you are from NY

  88. 88

    Adding a harmonica and a slide guitar behind the same vocal doesn't make it a country version. We already have a liberal anthem. It's called "We Shall Be Free." We don't need Born This Way. I hope she doesn't try to release that to country radio. It wouldn't go over well. And if you wanna say that no country star stood up for everyone, here are the lyrics from Garth's song. Now, tell me isn't for gay rights. Lady Gaga is not the be all and end all Perez and she does make mistakes. And trying to make this a country song was a big one.

    "We shall be free
    We shall be free
    Stand straight, walk proud
    'Cause we shall be free
    When we're free to love anyone we choose
    When this world's big enough for all different views
    When we all can worship from our own kind of pew
    Then we shall be free
    We shall be free"

  89. 89

    This reeks of desperation.

  90. 90

    I like this better than the original, but it's still horrible.

  91. @v@ says – reply to this


    Kudos to the harmonica player. Niiiiice. I actually like the rhythm and feel a lot.
    I think I like it better than the pop version. Her voice doesn't really match, but it does. I like that she crossed and did it. Thinking outside the box.

  92. 92

    this song is a PURE COPY of Christina Aguilera's BEAUTIFUL and NO remix can save it from being copied and LAME……GAGA SUCKS

  93. china says – reply to this


    strength of voice? message of the lyrics?

    you`ve got to be kidding, right?

  94. 94

    I know it hurts all u Kylie, xtina, Madonna, Britney fans. I know it hurts when she eats your heart and you realize there is someone more talented and all around better than your favorite. :) gaga has raised 1.5 million for japan what has your fav done? keep on hating. I've noticed it's all the same characters on here. U manage to always care about gaga and watch even though you say u sick of her. Don't watch or waste moments of your life u could be viewing your fav oh wait could it be gaga is getting to you, cuz u know she's that good. She never said this was country. But her mother was from west Virginia and her grandma still resides there :) so gaga does have some country haterz.
