Brantley Gilbert Is Ready to ‘Fire’t Up’ in New Song [LISTEN]
Brantley Gilbert's ready to have a little fun in his new song "Fire't Up." Readers can press play to hear the track, released on Friday (Sept. 6).
Gilbert co-wrote "Fire't Up" with Brandon Day and Justin Weaver. The song, a party-ready track with an echoing melody and banjo weaving throughout, opens his forthcoming new album, Fire & Brimstone. For Gilbert's fans, the song will sit comfortably next to "Kick It in the Sticks" and "Bottoms Up" on a playlist.
"Fire't Up" is one of 15 songs on Fire & Brimstone, all of which were written or co-written by Gilbert. He's already shared a number of tracks from the project, including his single "What Happens in a Small Town," a duet with Lindsay Ell; "Welcome to Hazeville," a stoner's anthem featuring Colt Ford, Lukas Nelson and Willie Nelson; "Not Like Us," which was used in a NASCAR marking campaign this spring; "Man That Hung the Moon" and "Bad Boy." The record's title track features Jamey Johnson and Alison Krauss as special guests.
"Jamey is like the reverend. And Alison is kind of like the choir girl or front-row Christian .... and I’m like the guy who’s in the back row that smokes a cigarette," Gilbert tells Taste of Country of the song "Fire & Brimstone." "Those are two of my favorite vocalists of all time. Jamey is just the man, and, you know, Alison -- I feel like if God put an angel’s voice on earth it’s probably hers."
