Gilbert hopes to be third time lucky

Monday, March 17, 2014 – Brantley Gilbert will release his third studio album "Just As I Am" on May 19 on Valory.

The lead single, "Bottoms Up," recently hit the top of the Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart and has sold more than 650,000 digital tracks to date.

Having written on every track, Gilbert' first new music in over four years delivers a more personal look into his life. "I have always said that each of my albums has told a story... my story, and this album is no different. This one picks up where 'Halfway to Heaven'left off," said Gilbert. "I have gone through a lot the past few years... a lot of highs and lows and all of that is reflected in this project. My fans know I'm a straight shooter so I didn't leave anything out. I think there is something for everyone - from my party side to the gentler stuff. I can't wait to share this new music with the BG Nation."

Songs on the CD Are:
"If You Want A Bad Boy" (Brantley Gilbert, Troy Verges)
"17 Again" (Brantley Gilbert, Ben Hayslip, Rhett Akins)
"Bottoms Up" (Brantley Gilbert, Brett James, Justin Weaver)
"That Was Us" (Brantley Gilbert)
"I'm Gone" (Brantley Gilbert, Wendell Mobley, Tony Martin)
"My Baby's Guns N' Roses" (Brantley Gilbert, Brian Davis, David Tolliver)
"Lights Of My Hometown" (Brantley Gilbert, Brian Davis, Forrest Whitehead)
"One Hell Of An Amen" (Brantley Gilbert, Mike Dekle, Brian Davis)
"Small Town Throwdown" (Brantley Gilbert, Ben Hayslip, Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson)
"Let It Ride" (Brantley Gilbert)
"My Faith In You" (Brantley Gilbert, Jeremy Spillman)

A deluxe version of the album will be made available exclusively at Walmart and include three additional tracks; newly recorded "G.R.I.T.S." (Gilbert), "Read Me My Rights"(Gilbert, Brian Davis, Jess Franklin) and "Grown Ass Man" (Gilbert).

"Just As I Am" is the follow-up to Gilbert's "Halfway to Heaven" from 2012, which has sold more than 1 million copies and scored the Georgia native back-to-back number one hits - "You Don't Know Her Like I Do" and "Country Must Be Country Wide." The reigning ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year has also penned "My Kinda Party" and "Dirt Road Anthem," both recorded by Jason Aldean.

Gilbert kicks off his second headline run - Let It Ride Tour - on March 27 with special guests Thomas Rhett and Eric Paslay.

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 ...
