With his new album Fire & Brimstone hot off The Valory Music Co. presses, Georgia boy and modern-day outlaw Brantley Gilbert heads to New York. Gilbert celebrated the release of Fire & Brimstone on October 4 with the men and women on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. Gilbert spent the day touring the base and meeting different units while learning about all they do for our country. Saying thank you the best way he knows how – Gilbert capped off the evening with a free concert with the USO for service members and their families at the WPAFB theater with an hour-plus long performance kicking off with “Kick It In The Sticks,” “What Happens In A Small Town” and ending with “Bottoms Up.”
His first release in nearly three years delivers Gilbert’s take on love, family, redemption and life in a small town. Like his previous four albums, all 15 tracks on Fire & Brimstone are either written or co-written by Gilbert.
Then on October 9, Nashville’s Lower Broadway crowd can throw down with Gilbert as he headlines on the Birthday Bash stage and helps the world-famous honky-tonk Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge celebrate its 59th Anniversary Birthday Bash. The free block party includes special guests Randy Houser, Lee Brice, Jon Pardi, Darryl Worley, Terri Clark, Montgomery Gentry, Payton Smith and more.
About Brantley Gilbert
With back-to-back platinum albums and a grassroots following millions strong, Brantley Gilbert has clearly struck a nerve. The Georgia native who started as the defiant life-of-the-party can still go ’til sunrise, but he’s also emerged as something far greater: the leader of a massive tribe of hard-working, fun-loving believers for whom electric guitar-shredding, rapping, and twang can go hand-in-hand-in-hand. They call themselves the BG Nation, and when the BG Nation watches Gilbert on a stage, they don’t just see a star. They see themselves. Six No. 1 hits punctuate his career: “Country Must be Country Wide,” “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do,” CMA Awards Song of the Year nominee “Dirt Road Anthem,” “My Kinda Party,” “Bottoms Up,” and “One Hell of an Amen.” Gilbert’s landmark record Just As I Am clinched the 2014 American Music Award for Favorite Country Album. Earning praise from the New York Times, NPR, American Songwriter, and more, Gilbert has mined a rich vein of conflict between the party and the pew on all of his albums. Instead of toiling in limbo, unable to enjoy good times for fear of Judgment Day, Gilbert fully lives––rowdy friend, man of faith, devoted husband, smitten new father––just as he is. Highly anticipated Fire & Brimstone, out now (10/4/19) via The Valory Music Co., is Gilbert’s most mature and complex exploration of his world to date. Following this fall’s Not Like Us Tour and his Second Annual Kick It in The Ship cruise, Gilbert embarks on his Fire’t Up Tour 2020 on January 23 in London, Canada with special guests Chase Rice, Dylan Scott and Brandon Lay.
