Gilbert releases "The Worst Country Song of All Time" video

Monday, August 16, 2021 – Following the release of his latest single, "The Worst Country Song of All Time," via The Valory Music Co., Brantley Gilbert is out with the worst country video of all time.

Gilbert and Brian Vaughn directed the clip, featuring his collaborator on the track HARDY, with a special appearance from Toby Keith.

Starring a rowdy crew of recognizable doppelganger political figures, including a saxophone-wielding Bill Clinton, the video, like the song, parodies the genre, featuring electric cars and minivans along with some questionable fashion choices.

"I honestly never thought we'd get this far with this song," said Gilbert. "It really started as a goofy idea that we were having fun with, and we've been glad to bring a laugh to folks this summer after such a rough year. We can't wait for BG Nation to see what else we have in store later this year."

Gilbert has been writing and recording during his time off from the road with new music coming later this year.

"We've had a lot of great writes over the last few months," Gilbert said. "We got outside of our box a little bit. As artists and writers, we have a group of people that we're extremely comfortable writing with, that we know we're going to be productive with and we know what kind of song we're going write. But we branched out a little bit and wrote with some folks we haven't written with before, just to see what would happen and what would come out of it."

"I have to say, I'm extremely proud of what we got on the way," he said.

"The Worst Country Song Of All Time" is the first taste of new music following the release of "Fire & Brimstone (Deluxe Edition)," an extended version of his fifth studio album which explores love and family, redemption and life in a small town. Gilbert helped write all 17 songs. The lead single, "What Happens In A Small Town" featuring Lindsay Ell, was his fifth number one as an artist, seventh as a songwriter.

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. 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. ...
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 ...
