Brantley Gilbert celebrated the release of his fifth studio album FIRE & BRIMSTONE, via The Valory Music Co., with a packed week of activity including stops at the iHeart Theater in New York for an intimate “iHeartCountry Album Release Party” with his fans, a fiery performance on Fox & Friends and headlined the Tootsies’ 59th Anniversary Birthday Bash in Music City.
He shows no signs of slowing down as he gears up for a Monday Night Football appearance Oct. 14, performing at Lambeau Field at the Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers game that will air on ESPN during the Genesis-sponsored halftime show.
Hailed by NPR for performances that “pack a punch,” Gilbert gave Nashville a taste of FIRE & BRIMSTONE as he headlined Tootsies’ 59th Anniversary Birthday Bash on Oct. 9, opening with fan favorites “Kick It in the Sticks” and “Country Must Be Country Wide,” before peppering in new tracks “Fire’t Up” and “Bad Boy.”
The rowdy Broadway crowd was delighted as Gilbert introduced Lindsay Ell to perform current Top 10 and climbing single, “What Happens in a Small Town.”
Before performing “One Hell Of An Amen,” Gilbert dedicated it to veterans, service men and women and their families, as well as those fighting cancer: “Whether you’re a patient, a doctor or a nurse, a friend or a family member, we all like to think we go through it together.”
Earlier this week, Gilbert treated fans to an intimate performance and Q&A at the iHeartRadio Theater NY on Oct. 7 and followed it up with an explosive morning show appearance on Fox & Friends Oct. 8, performing lead track “Fire’t Up” from FIRE & BRIMSTONE.
Next month Gilbert will embark on his Second Annual Kick It in The Ship cruise Nov. 4-Nov. 8, before kicking off his Fire’t Up Tour 2020 Jan. 23, in London, Ontario. For dates and to purchase tickets, visit BrantleyGilbert.com
