Includes January 30, 2020 Stop at the TaxSlayer Center


NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE (September 6, 2019) — Just a few short weeks before the much-anticipated October 4 release of his fifth studio album Fire and Brimstone via The Valory Music Co, Brantley Gilbert, billed as an artist who "never fails to deliver" by American Songwriter, is already looking for opportunities to bring the music to his faithful BG Nation with a brand new 2020 tour. Fire't Up Tour, aptly named after track one on his upcoming 15-song album (all written/co-written by Gilbert), will kick off January 23 in London, Ontario, and hit 34 cities across the country and Canada, before concluding May 8 in Colorado.

Gilbert — who identifies as a songwriter first — has invited fellow singer/songwriters to join as tour special guests: Chase Rice who The New York Times praises for his "prime power country" style, known for hits "Eyes On You" and "Lonely If You Are"; Louisiana-native, country-singer/songwriter Dylan Scott, whose hits include "My Girl" and "Hooked," and current single, "Nothing To Do Town"; and a man Rolling Stone calls "a country-rock version of Bruce Springsteen" after last year's opening slot on Kenny Chesney's Trip Around The Sun Tour, EMI recording artist Brandon Lay.

"I truly feel like we're at the point that we can let the music take us where it is meant to go, so with every new album we like to change up our show and make it something that plays to those stories and characters," shares Gilbert. "We'll of course still do the hits our fans love, but we are looking at this as an opportunity to turn up the heat a bit and give the songs on Fire & Brimstone a chance to really rock."

Gilbert's fifth studio album set for release on October 4 features a series of powerhouse collaborations with some of country music's finest artists, such as Lindsay Ell, Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Jamey Johnson, Lukas Nelson, and Colt Ford.

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 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 as they rock the high-seas from Miami to Cozumel this November.

About Brantley Gilbert

With back-to-back platinum albums and a grassroots following millions strong, Brantley Gilbert has clearly struck a nerve. The Georgia native who started as the defiant life-of-the-party can still go 'til sunrise, but he's also emerged as something far greater: The leader of a massive tribe of hard-working, fun-loving believers for whom electric guitar-shredding, rapping, and twang can go hand-in-hand-in-hand. They call themselves the BG Nation, and when the BG Nation watches Gilbert on a stage, they don't just see a star. They see themselves. Six N° 1 hits punctuate his career: "Country Must be Country Wide," "You Don't Know Her Like I Do," CMA Awards Song of the Year nominee "Dirt Road Anthem," "My Kinda Party," "Bottoms Up," and "One Hell of an Amen." Gilbert's landmark record Just As I Am clinched the 2014 American Music Award for Favorite Country Album. Earning praise from the New York Times, NPR, American Songwriter, and more, Gilbert has mined a rich vein of conflict between the party and the pew on all of his albums. Instead of toiling in limbo, unable to enjoy good times for fear of Judgment Day, Gilbert fully lives — rowdy friend, man of faith, devoted husband, smitten new father —just as he is. Highly-anticipated Fire and Brimstone, out October 4 via The Valory Music Co, is Gilbert's most mature and complex exploration of his world to date.
