Brantley Gilbert’s Winter Crowds Get Him Ready for "The Weekend"

Cover Art Courtesy of The Valory Music Co.Brantley Gilbert is back with a new single, just in time for “The Weekend.” It’s a song that was inspired by the crowds on his Blackout Tour last winter.

“We were rolling through the Midwest, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Minnesota, and you see how hard people work-- and how much they need to let it go when they get to Friday!” Brantley recalls. “All those people coming out to the shows and rocking hard, they meant business. I wanted to write a song that matched that intensity to kick back even harder than you work.”

This summer, Brantley’s meeting those same kinds of fans on his Take It Outside Tour with Justin Moore and Colt Ford. When he’s not on the road, he’s busy working to follow up “The Weekend” with his new album.
