Though nothing is ever as good as the original version, it's always fun when someone takes some liberties and puts together a remix of a popular song. A YouTuber did just that with Alan Jackson's "Gone Country".

"Gone Country" was written by Bob McDill and released on Alan Jackson's Who I Am album in 1994. It reached #1 on the US Hot Country Songs (Billboard) chart and #2 on the Canada Country Tracks (RPM) chart. Jackson wrote on his The Greatest Hits Collection that, "Bob McDill wrote this and he is one of my favorite writers of all time. When I first heard this song I fell in love with it. I wish that I'd written it cause it says a lot of things that I'd like to say. I think it's just a fun song actually, celebrating how country music has become more widespread and accepted by all types of people all over the country."

This remix is tons of fun and definitely something worth dancing to and checking out. We even think Alan wouldn't mind doin' a little two-step to this up tempo version.

+++++++++++++ LYRICS BELOW +++++++++++++

She's been playing in a room on a strip
For ten years in Vegas
And every night she looks in the mirror
But she only ages
She's been reading about Nashville and all
The records that everybody's buying
Says, "I'm a simple girl myself
Grew up on long island"

So she packs her bags to try to her hand
Says, "This might be my last chance"

She's gone country, look at them boots
She's gone country, back to her roots
She's gone country, a new kind of suit
She's gone country, here she comes

Well the folk scene is dead
But he's holding out in the village
He's been writing songs speaking out
Against wealth and privilege
He says, "I don't believe in money
But a man could make him a killin'"
'Cause some of that stuff don't sound
Much different than Dylan 

I hear down there it's changed you see
They're not as backwards as they used to be 

He's gone country, look at them boots
He's gone country, back to her roots
He's gone country, a new kind of suit
He's gone country, here he comes 

He commutes to L.A.
But he's got a house in the valley
But the bills are piling up
And the pop scene just ain't on the rally
And he says, "Honey I'm a serious composer
Schooled in voice and composition"
But with the crime and the smog these days
This ain't no place for children

Lord, it sounds so easy, it shouldn't take long
Be back in the money in no time at all

He's gone country, look at them boots
He's gone country, back to his roots
He's gone country, a new kind of suit
He's gone country, here he comes 

Yeah, he's gone country, a new kind of walk
He's gone country, a new kind of talk
He's gone country, look at them boots
He's gone country, oh, back to his roots 

He's gone country
He's gone country
Everybody's gone country
Yeah we've gone country
The whole world's gone country
