On Thursday, we brought you “Draw Me a Map,” featuring the soulful guest stylings of Alison “Grammys, Y’all” Krauss.

On Friday, you heard Dierks team up with former SteelDriver Chris Stapleton for “Fallin’ For You.”

Today, we’re streaming “Bad Angel,” one hell of a three-way with Miranda Lambert and Jamey Johnson. This one is all about vices, and as Miranda told me during this year’s ACMs, “They let me do the drinking verse, which was at my request.”

Give it a listen, and let us know what you think in the comments. Are you headed out to buy Up On the Ridge tomorrow? While you’re at it, let’s play a little fantasy management: Should more mainstream country artists take this kind of risk? Who would you like to see step outside the radio format next?
