Brooks & Dunn, Cody Johnson Perform “Red Dirt Road” | CMT Crossroads


My daughter’s here tonight. She’s an Ole Miss grad,
but she used to come back with her girlfriends from
Knoxville in east Tennessee, and she’d bring me videos
of this guy singing songs. She goes, Dad, I swear he’s
going to be a star some day. He’s going to be a star.
Listen to his voice. And I’d freak out. And I said well, where is he? Then this rodeo cowboy shows
up by the name of Cody Johnson. [cheers] And he sings his ass off. But we’re proud to
have Cody here tonight. Thank you. [cheers] [MUSIC – BROOKS AND DUNN, “RED
DIRT ROAD”] (SINGING) Well, I was
raised off of Rural Route 3, out past where
the blacktop ends. We’d walk to church
on Sunday morning, race barefoot back
to Johnson’s fence. That’s where I
first saw Mary on that roadside pickin’ blackberries. That summer I turned
a corner in my soul down that red dirt road. Her daddy didn’t like me
much in my shackled-up GTO. I’d sneak out in the
middle of the night, throw rocks at her
bedroom window. We’d turn out the headlights,
drive by the moonlight, talk about what the future might
hold down that red dirt road. It’s where I
drank my first beer. It’s where I found Jesus,
where I wrecked my first car. I tore it all to pieces. I learned the path to heaven. It’s full of sinners
and believers. Learned that happiness on earth
ain’t just for high achievers. Oh, I’ve learned. I’ve come to know there’s life
at both ends of that red dirt road. I went out into the
world and I came back in. I lost Mary, oh, I
got her back again. And drivin’ home
tonight, feels like I’ve found a long lost friend. It’s where I drank
my first beer. It’s where I found Jesus. Where I wrecked my first car. I tore it all to pieces. I learned the path to heaven. It’s full of sinners
and believers. Learned that happiness on earth
ain’t just for high achievers. Oh, I’ve learned. I’ve come to know there’s
life at both ends– Oh, I’ve learned
and I’ve come to know there’s life at both ends
of that red dirt road. [cheers] Y’all give it up for my
heroes up here on stage. Make some noise for
Brooks and Dunn, would ya? [cheers]
