Brantley Gilbert has a new song out. It’s got the same Brantley Gilbert attitude that we’ve all come to love in country music. There is just something about this guy and his style of country music that has really connected with fans.
He brings a little rock figured out a way to cater to a country audience that really hadn’t had an artist to latch onto for awhile. It’s pretty cool.
This is the first single from a new album and this should kick things off really well.
The Weekend – Brantley Gilbert
The thing about this song is that it teeters on the edge of being too familiar. It’s about working all week and living for the weekend. It’s about living it up and having a good time and all those things.
I don’t know if any other artist could have pulled this one off. I don’t know if Luke Bryan has the attitude or if Jason Aldean has the right style.
But it’s perfect for Brantley and he really takes this song to the next level. And the more I listen to the words in the song the more I find clever lines like:
9-to-5ing my life away
There is some really good stuff in this song. And the biggest thing that you won’t miss is that the song puts you in the right kind of mood. It makes you feel like you’re about to have some fun.
I can imagine that this one has already been a hit in concert. It already sounds like a classic Brantley Gilbert song.
