NASHVILLE, TN (September 23, 2019) – When Brantley Gilbert started looking for ways to celebrate the release of his sixth studio album, FIRE & BRIMSTONE, the working-class kid from Jefferson, Georgia wanted to pull together a celebration for his hard-working fans. With that in mind, Gilbert has partnered with world-famous honky-tonk Tootsies ahead of their 59th birthday celebration for what is sure to be one hell of a party!
Gilbert joins Tootsie’s Orchid lounge to take over Broadway between 4th & 5th Avenue to celebrate his new album at Tootsies’ 59th Anniversary Birthday Bash, a free block party on October 9 with special guests Randy Houser, Lee Brice, Jon Pardi, Darryl Worley, Terri Clark, Montgomery Gentry, Payton Smith and more.
The man Billboard opined “Merle Haggard was known as the ‘Poet of the Common Man,’ and while some might have their opinions about comparing any modern-day star to the late country legend, one thing is for sure – Brantley Gilbert knows his audience” will headline the outdoor concert that begins at noon with Tootsies’ mainstays John Stone, Anthony Oreo and Emcee Scott Collier.
With “What Happens In A Small Town” inside the Top 10 and two arena tours across North America between now and early 2020, the man with No. 1s “Country Must Be Country Wide,” “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do,” “Bottoms Up” and “One Hell of an Amen” – plus writing “My Kind of Party” and the CMA Song of the Year nominee “Dirt Road Anthem” – wants to celebrate the new music with the BG Nation.
“Whether serving our country, working your ass off to provide to your family, or just barely getting by but doing everything you can in the meantime to make it work, we have more in common than we are different, and we want to bring everyone together to pause and reflect on the moments that make it all worth the work,” adds Gilbert.
Previous Tootsies Birthday Bash performers include Kid Rock, Jake Owen, Travis Tritt and Jamey Johnson. This will be Gilbert’s first appearance on the Tootsie’s Birthday Bash stage.
