NASHVILLE, TN (February 17, 2013) – Brantley Gilbert is kicking off 2014 in high gear with new music and a headline tour.
Impacting Country radio recently, "Bottoms Up" is the first new music the Georgia native has produced for his loyal BG Nation fans in over four years. The lead single from Brantley's forthcoming album on The Valory Music Co. was made available in late December and quickly shot up the iTunes charts peaking at #1 on the Country Singles Chart and #8 All Genres. Coinciding with the single release, fans were also able to purchase the accompanying video, which was shot in Nashville and flashes from 1930’s vintage to modern day party scenes. Directed by CMA Award-winning Shane Drake, the video has already garnered over 1.2 million views on VEVO. Watch here.
The Country rocker will preview additional new material during his 22-city LET IT RIDE TOUR, beginning 3/27 in La Crosse, WI. During Brantley’s second headlining tour, which makes stops at arenas across the country, fans can also expect to hear the GOLD-certified #1 hits, “Country Must Be Country Wide” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.”
“I’m really excited to get this new music out to the fans! The response from the BG Nation has blown me away. They always come out in full force,” said Brantley. “Can’t wait to see the reaction we get on the road.”
To help make the announcement, Brantley called on the BG Nation to use the hashtag #LETITRIDETOUR on Instagram to post photos and videos expressing excitement about the tour, and finding creative ways to announce their hometown's tour date or the stop closest to them. More information on the promotion and a gallery of fan-submitted content is available at www.brantleygilbert.com.

About Thomas Rhett: Watching father Rhett Akins work as an artist and hit songwriter, music has always been a part of 23-year-old Thomas Rhett’s life. The Valdosta, GA, native spent his high school years dabbling in songwriting and playing in a band with friends. Thomas Rhett signed his first publishing deal with EMI while still a student at Lipscomb University in Nashville, and shortly thereafter, signed a record deal with The Valory Music Co. The talented singer has scored two Top 15 hits – the poignant “Beer With Jesus” and debut single “Something To Do With My Hands” – both of which are on his debut album, IT GOES LIKE THIS, out now. The project also features Thomas Rhett's new single, “Get Me Some Of That,” as well as the multi-week #1, “It Goes Like This,” which has been certified PLATINUM for sales of over 1 million downloads. With his first-time #1 holding the top spot for three weeks on the Billboard Country Singles Chart, Thomas Rhett ties Miranda Lambert for the record set three years ago with "The House That Built Me. As a gifted songwriter, he has penned Florida Georgia Line’s two-week #1 “Round Here” and two Jason Aldean cuts, including the Top 15 smash “1994.” He recently wrapped his opening slot on Aldean’s NIGHT TRAIN TOUR and was a part of the first-ever Country concert at Fenway Park in Boston. He has made national television appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, The Queen Latifah Show and FOX’s American Country Awards.
