Covered: ‘Country Goes Metal” Finds Righteous Vendetta Reimagining Montgomery Gentry, Rodney Atkins Hits

Filed Under:


A handful of country hits were just injected with a dose of heavy metal.

Country Goes Metal is a five-song EP featuring vocals from Righteous Vendetta frontman Ryan Hayes atop music by multi-instrumentalist Austin Woodward.

“In the ’70s, when Black Sabbath was doing their thing, that was considered heavy metal then, and now you listen to heavy metal, and it’s so much heavier. So I think, as this progresses, we’re going to see an entire subgenre come out of this, like country metal,” Hayes says. “I think it’s going to get heavier, and it’s going to get more crazy. We’re really excited to release Country Goes Metal. We’ve always loved country music, and it’s been a lot of fun to take these classic songs and put our own spin on them.”

Country Goes Metal was produced, engineered, and mixed by RIAA Certified Mixer Billy Decker and Executive Produced by Grammy award-winning engineer, Noah Gordon.
