Get ready BG Nation.
Having spent the last 6 months writing for his upcoming album, Brantley Gilbert has been itching to get back on the road. Featuring support from Michael Ray and Lindsay Ell, the 2019 Not Like Us Tour kicks off this summer in Cincinnati, Ohio, and will run into the fall with more dates to be added later.
“I’m trying to open things up, but keep bringing the intensity,” Gilbert says of what might well be his most diverse line-up yet. “I think Michael really gets how guys feel, and rolls into a sound that’s all his own, and Lindsay, man, the only thing better than the way she sings is the way she plays that guitar! I am really fired up to be bringing both these folks out on the road this fall, because I know they’re gonna give the BG Nation something that’s gonna lift’em up, throw’em down, and make them glad they got there early.”
Embracing a “fans come first” mentality, Gilbert is going to be leaving it all out there on the stage.
“People work hard for their money, and I take it very seriously when we come to town,” says the South Georgia-born and bred star. “Any time we hit that stage, we intend to give the people everything we’ve got. This new music is a whole new chapter of my life, and as much as the fans have been there for every step of this journey, I think – once again – they’re gonna know just what I’m singing, too.”
