Justin Moore, Brantley Gilbert Release Previews From Motley Crue Tribute Album

Country fans who were disappointed by the delay of the upcoming Motley Crue country tribute album now have two preview clips to tide them over.

Originally set for a release date of July 8, ‘Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute to Motley Crue’ has been pushed back until Aug. 19. But Big Machine — whose president and CEO, Scott Borchetta, spearheaded the project — have released previews of Justin Moore‘s version of ‘Home Sweet Home,’ as well as Brantley Gilbert‘s cover of ‘Girls, Girls, Girls.’

Moore’s track — which features Crue singer Vince Neil — is essentially a countrified version of the original, keeping the central piano figure intact. Moore even delivers the melody in the same upper register as the Crue recording, singing well outside the comfort zone of most contemporary male country vocalists.

The track is set for release as the album’s first single, Moore’s next single to country radio.

By contrast, Gilbert’s version of ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ stays closer to the original instrumentation, with heavy distorted guitars, but features the tough-guy country singer in a vocal performance more tailored to his natural vocal range.

The video below features a snippet from the track, as well as Nikki Sixx and Vince Neil discussing Gilbert’s take on their song.

Other artists who contributed to the project include Rascal Flatts, Florida Georgia Line and Gretchen Wilson.
