Brantley Gilbert Scores Third No. 1 Hit
Brantley Gilbert has earned his third No. 1 single with his latest release, ‘Bottoms Up,’ hitting the top spot on the Billboard Country Airplay chart and the Mediabase chart.
The song follows Gilbert’s two other No. 1 hits, ‘Country Must Be Country Wide’ and ‘You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.’ Gilbert has also hit the charts as a songwriter on Jason Aldean‘s ‘My Kinda Party’ and ‘Dirt Road Anthem.’
‘Bottoms Up’ is the lead single off of Gilbert’s upcoming album, ‘Just As I Am,’ and has sold over a million downloads, with the video having more than 14 million views.
‘Just As I Am’ is set for release on May 19. Gilbert, who co-wrote all 11 tracks on the release, says he hopes the album will give fans a glimpse into his personal life.
“I have always said that each of my albums has told a story… my story, and this album is no different. This one picks up where ‘Halfway to Heaven left off,” he says. “I have gone through a lot the past few years… a lot of highs and lows and all of that is reflected in this project. My fans know I’m a straight shooter so I didn’t leave anything out. I think there is something for everyone — from my party side to the gentler stuff. I can’t wait to share this new music with the BG Nation.”
