Brantley Gilbert’s fifth studio album, Fire & Brimstone, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, moving 36,000 equivalent units according to Nielsen Music.
The new album—buoyed by Top 10 lead single “What Happens in a Small Town with Lindsay Ell—features 15 songs, all of which Brantley had a hand in writing. In addition to Lindsay, Brantley’s new album features guest vocals from Colt Ford, Jamey Johnson, Alison Krauss, Willie Nelson and Lukas Nelson.
“With this record, the goal for me was to let each song just be what it was––uninhibited and unfiltered,” says Brantley. “We just followed the song’s instincts. I like to be able to write, and if it feels like the song is leading a certain way, then let’s go chase it.”
Fire & Brimstone follows Brantley’s previous chart-topping albums Just as I Am (2014) and The Devil Don’t Sleep (2017).
