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.

CD reviews for Brantley Gilbert

Fire & Brimstone CD review - Fire & Brimstone
It would be easy (and lazy journalism) to write about how much Brantley Gilbert's music is un-country. You need only isolate the drum parts for most of these latest songs to confirm this is primarily a rock recording (masked as country). However, there are some quality - if not exactly country - songs on this effort, which cry out for a different sort of evaluation. Gilbert saves his best for last with "Man That Hung The Moon," a song about fatherhood that will likely bring many dads to tears. »»»
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 »»»
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: For Brooks and fans, a most unusual change of pace – To say that this was a change of pace for Garth Brooks - not to mention his fans - would be an understatement of the highest degree. Brooks all but begged during the show to be playing next door at Gillette Stadium where the New England Patriots play. But, alas, Brooks exuded joy and excitement at the chance to play before about 500 people at a club,... »»»
Concert Review: LBT proves more than capable – If you have seen Little Big Town in the last decade, it could have been anywhere from a B stage at a Rib Fest to a 20,000-seat amphitheater as the opener for some of country's top acts. Their current "Nightfall" tour rightfully proves they are more than capable and well deserved being billed as a top headlining act.... »»»
