From the tailgate to the rave, Apple Music is providing the soundtrack after launching "YeeDM," a new radio series merging EDM and country music.

Yes, it's okay to cringe at the name. According to a press release shared with EDM.com, "YeeDM" will deliver an exclusive mix of music spotlighting collaborations between country and EDM artists. Listeners will also hear country songs with electronic production as well as dance remixes of the genre's biggest hits.

"You might hear a Dolly Parton edit going into Jack Harlow, or going into Alesso or Diplo," said the show's DJ, Telemitry. "You might hear everything from Megan Thee Stallion to George Strait in these mixes. You have a one-hour mix to blend all these worlds together."

Many DJs have attempted to incorporate the sounds of country music into their work in recent years. And while the nexus of country music and EDM is a frail one, it has led to some big hits.
