Gilbert spews "Fire & Brimstone"
Friday, August 2, 2019
– Brantley Gilbert will turn up the "Fire & Brimstone" when his fifth album is out Oct. 4
With 15 songs - all written or co-written by Gilbert - the album includes already-released cuts like the personal ode to his children "Man That Hung the Moon," "Not Like Us" and the collaboration with Lindsay Ell, "What Happens In A Small Town."
The album also features collaborations with Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Jamey Johnson, Lukas Nelson and Colt Ford.
"I know it sounds crazy, but never did I once bring a lyric sheet into the studio with me," Gilbert said regarding the recording process for the new album. "I feel like I am at this stage in my career where I am confident enough to let the music take me where it's meant to go, no matter how down and dirty that might be. There is no doubt that this is the album that allowed me to grow up musically."
Gilbert recently released the music video for "Man That Hung the Moon." Directed by Matt Zervos, the video shows Gilbert's live show along with never-before-captured footage of Gilbert with his family.
Shortly after the album's October release, Gilbert will set sail for his Second Annual Kick It in the Ship cruise. He will be joined by Chase Rice, LANCO, Diamond Rio, Tyler Farr, Danielle Bradbery, Jon Langston, Colt Ford, Tyler Rich, SixForty1, Trea Landon, Sam Grow, Tyler Braden, Brian Davis, Tyler Booth and more on the high-seas from Miami to Cozumel this November.

Just As I Am
Brantley Gilbert's third release is a collection of songs that define who he is as an artist. There is a notable absence of wild experimentation here; these are straightforward songs from the artist who broke through with "Halfway to Heaven." The tattooed country rocker follows in the footsteps of Eric Church's recent hit, "The Outsiders," making a conscious step away from the overproduced hip hop country that artists like Florida Georgia Line are taking to the top of the charts. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones
Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time.
