Gilbert raises some more "Fire & Brimstone"

Friday, September 25, 2020 – Nearly one year after the release of Brantley Gilbert's fifth album, "Fire & Brimstone (Deluxe Edition)" (The Valory Music Co.), is set for release Oct. 2, featuring two new songs.

The song include the current single "Hard Days" and "Old Friends," a ballad written after the unexpected passing of Gilbert's long-time crew member and friend Al Ditch.

"'Old Friends' is about treasuring friendships with those folks who always have your back through thick and thin, the ones you make memories with that last a lifetime," said Gilbert. "Al was that kind of friend, and he had that kind of impact on the entire crew. He made sure we'd have plenty of good memories to look back on, and we're so blessed to have had him with us for eight years."

Released Oct. 4, 2019, "Fire & Brimstone" focused on life in a small town, with all 15 tracks written or co-written by Gilbert. Lead single "What Happens In A Small Town" featuring Lindsay Ell marked his fifth number one, seventh as a songwriter and earned nominations for the 2019 CMA Award for Musical Event of the Year and 2020 ACM Award for Music Event of the Year.

"When you write as much as I do, there's just no sense in holding it back, especially when it fits in so well with what BG Nation is listening to at the moment," said the Maysville, Ga. native. "After hearing our fans and knowing so many of them are going through it, we wanted to commemorate the one-year anniversary of our latest album with something special."

CD reviews for Brantley Gilbert

CD review - Fire & Brimstone It would be easy (and lazy journalism) to write about how much Brantley Gilbert's music is un-country.

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. ...
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 ...
