Gilbert plans to Take It Outside this summer

Wednesday, February 3, 2016 – With a winter tour barely underway, Brantley Gilbert announced today he would Take It Outside this summer on a 22-date tour starting in June.

The tour kicks off June 2 at Mansfield, Mass' XFinity Center and ends in October.

"We're just getting started bringing the music to the people," Gilbert said. "We hit that stage in Saginaw, (Mich>), and the crowd was lit up. Makes you wanna hit the road, and stay out there - when the people are so raging. We knew when we did this arena tour, we were gonna wanna take it outside. We don't have all the dates in place, but I want the fans in these markets to know I'm coming,"

Joining Gilbert for his Take It Outside Tour are label-mate Justin Moore and "Dirt Road Anthem" co-writer Colt Ford. The three have previously toured together.

"We've all done so many things together," Gilbert said. "This is one of those tour's that'll be crazy before it even rolls. Justin likes to really push the limits, and he's a pretty serious performer... and Colt is one of those guys who gets how to hit a crowd right between the eyes. If you love your country on the rougher side, this is gonna be a show for you."

CD reviews for Brantley Gilbert

The Devil Don't Sleep CD review - The Devil Don't Sleep
For those fans worrying over the potential demise of bro country, rest easy; Brantley Gilbert is here to keep that flag flying high. Comprised of a solid set of radio ready rockers alongside a few tamer numbers, Gilbert sets out to prove the establishment wrong, rolling his way through 16 tales of hard living and partying. Yet, while Gilbert holds strong to the "bro country" stance, he's also very much his own man, allowing his faith and values to pull front and center as well. »»»
Just As I Am: Platinum Edition CD review - Just As I Am: Platinum Edition
With the third version of Brantley Gilbert's "Just as I Am," he has almost doubled the average country album track listing. The definitive Platinum Edition contains 19 tracks that feature his trademark rock inflected country sound. The original 11 tracks are still intact, with the addition of the 3 songs from the original deluxe edition. Added on at the end are five new songs that largely fit well with the tone of the album. Those who originally purchased the regular edition »»»
Just As I Am CD review - 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: Pistol Annies hit the targets – Pistol Annies, the all-star trio comprised of Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley, made the last stop of its short tour a downtown Los Angeles date. This was the last show, that is, until after the pregnant Presley gives birth to her child. Traveling in support of the act's third album "Interstate Gospel," these talented... »»»
Concert Review: Williams brings the joy back – It's not as if Lucinda Williams has been idle. Far from it this year, but 20 years on, Williams decided to trot out her masterpiece "Car Wheels on a Gravel Road" as the centerpiece of her tour. Music and artist have held up exceedingly well. Williams had always been a well thought of performer, although she was not too big when it came... »»»
