Brantley Gilbert has been in a little trouble. He’s gone too fast, stayed too late, and knocked out lights. But he’s also seen poetry where others only saw weeds and broken glass, and resurrected faith after some declared it’d flatlined. Then, he put it in a song.

“Bleeding all over a piece of paper and wearing your heart on your sleeve: Music is the truest form of expression outside of prayer,” Gilbert says. “Music’s supposed to be a safe place for all things.”

Gilbert is home in Maysville, Georgia, reflecting on the singular path he’s taken to Fire & Brimstone, his fifth album released October 4, 2019, via the Valory Music Co. The guy who started as the defiant life-of-the-party can still go till sunrise, but he’s also emerged as something far greater: the leader of a massive tribe of hard-working, fun-loving believers for whom electric guitar-shredding, rapping, and twang can go hand-in-hand-in-hand. They call themselves the BG Nation, and when the BG Nation watches Gilbert on a stage, they don’t just see a star. They see themselves.

As a country artist with back-to-back platinum albums, Gilbert has clearly struck a nerve. Seven No. 1 hits punctuate his career: “Country Must be Country Wide,” “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do,” CMA Awards Song of the Year nominee “Red Dirt Anthem,” “My Kinda Party,” “Bottoms Up,” “One Hell of an Amen,” and “What Happens In A Small Town,” featuring Lindsay Ell. Gilbert’s landmark record Just As I Am clinched the 2014 American Music Award for Favorite Country Album.

On all of his albums, Gilbert has mined a rich vein of conflict between the party and the pew. The titles alone capture the battle: Modern Day Prodigal Son (2009), platinum-certified Halfway to Heaven (2010) and Just As I Am (2014) and gold-certified The Devil Don’t Sleep (2017). But Gilbert has never forsaken any part of himself in order to better fit somebody else’s idea of who he should be. Instead of toiling in limbo, unable to enjoy good times for fear of Judgment Day, Gilbert fully lives––rowdy friend, man of faith, devoted husband, smitten new father––just as he is. Fire & Brimstone is Gilbert’s most mature and complex exploration of his world––including that holy and hell-raising tug-o-war––to date.

“I always say that my albums are chapters of my life, and ‘Fire & Brimstone’ is no different,” Gilbert says. “Usually, I try to cover every aspect of who I am, but on this one, I did especially. This album is where I’ve been and where I am. It’s a little bit of the journey.”

Years of following his own muse instead of worshipping someone else’s have paid off for Gilbert––and he doesn’t show any signs of changing course. “We always know where we stand,” he says. “As long as there’s a box, I always know where I’m supposed to be, and that’s on the outside of it.”
