Like Great Diplomats Before Them, Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley Forge a Special Relationship by Crooning a U.K.-Themed Country Jam

Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley debuted their new single "Honky Tonk in the UK" (feat. James Corden) on The Late Late Show last night. Think of the song as a kind of reciprocity for the British Invasion; we got the Beatles, and now Bryan and Dierks have gifted our former overlords with one of our most homegrown art forms, packaged for the Brits with the Rosetta Stone of Daniel Radcliffe's bouncing head. Something of a synthesis of American and British traditions, "Honky Tonk in the UK" is just the latest in a long and fruitful cultural dialogue between two great nations.
