One of my favorites, Brantley Gilbert, just released a new single to iTunes today titled “Bottoms Up“. It is the lead off single to what will be his next album which will be released in February 2014.
The thing I love about Brantley Gilbert is his raw edge and outlaw country sound. Unfortunately, I don’t hear that sound in his new tune. It sounds more like a Florida Georgia Line song, rather than a BG one, which is fine, I love FGL. The song is too commercial for me, for Gilbert, and I hope this song is not an indication of what Brantley’s new album will sound like (completely different from his previous).
All in all, I do like the song. It leaves me with mixed feelings. I expect it to do well and climb the radio charts. I just didn’t expect this type of song from Brantley Gilbert. But it’s a party song, and that’s what’s popular right now. Can’t blame the label or Brantley for putting it out.
