Former DRIVE-BY TRUCKER JASON ISBELL is absolutely convinced that DIERKS BENTLEY'S song "Home" sounds exactly like his song "In A Razor Town". And Jason may be taking legal action to prove his point.
Jason wrote on his Twitter page, quote, "Dierks' has officially ripped off my song 'In A Razor Town'. Dierks is a douchebag." Jason added, quote, "The song of Dierks' is called 'Home'."
Dierks co-wrote the song with songwriters Dan Wilson and Brett Beavers. (--Wilson co-wrote ADELE'S "Someone Like You". He's also written for the DIXIE CHICKS and KEITH URBAN, to name a few.)--probably likely he did that.
A Twitter war broke out once Dierks jumped into the mix. On Saturday he Tweeted, quote, "@jasonisbel is that what you 'bet' happened? That's how you imagine it? #fantasyworld #get-over-yourself."
To prove his point, Dierks' next Tweet included a link to an interview Dan Wilson did with ASCAP where he talks about the writing session for "Home". Wilson said the "verse melody" was "mostly Brett" and that Brett said the song "fell from the sky."
Jason must have contacted his overpriced attorneys, because on Saturday he Tweeted, quote, "I officially 'can't talk about it right now.' We'll see what pans out."
