‘Fire It Up’
Country music star Gilbert coming in April
Country music artist Brantley Gilbert, billed as an artist who “never fails to deliver” by American Songwriter, will bring his ‘Fire’t Up’ tour to the Florence Center April 23, 2020.
Tickets start at $40, and are on sale at the Florence Center box office or online via Ticketmaster.com.
Identifying as a songwriter first, Gilbert has invited fellow singer/songwriters to join as tour special guests, Chase Rice and Brandon Lay. Known for hits “Eyes On You” and “Lonely If You Are,” the New York Times praised Rice for his “prime power country” style. Lay, referred to by Rolling Stone magazine as “a country-rock version of Bruce Springsteen” took to the road last year as the opening act for Kenny Chesney’s Trip Around The Sun Tour.
Gilbert will be promoting his most recent album, “Fire & Brimstone”.
“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 Oct. 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.
The Georgia native has recorded six No. 1 hits: “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.”
