Brantley Gilbert is kicking off 2014 in high gear with new music and a headline tour.
Impacting Country radio today, "Bottoms Up" is the first new music the Georgia native has produced for his loyal BG Nation fans in over four years. The lead single from Brantley's forthcoming album on The Valory Music Co. was made available in late December and quickly shot up the iTunes charts peaking at #1 on the Country Singles Chart and #8 All Genres. Coinciding with the single release, fans were also able to purchase the accompanying video, which was shot in Nashville and flashes from 1930’s vintage to modern day party scenes. Directed by CMA Award-winning Shane Drake, the video has already garnered over 1.2 million views on VEVO. Watch here.
With references to Bonnie and Clyde, you'd definitely expect Brantley to go old school for the video to Bottoms Up, and that's just what he did.

I think most country fans are looking for the charts to get
more interesting now as most of them have come to a standstill this week.
Florida Georgia Line are still at #1 (does it even need to be said?) with their
‘Cruise’ remix on Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs, and ‘Here’s To
The Good Times’ remains at #1 on Top Country Albums. Meanwhile, their new
single ‘Round Here’ is climbing up in the wake of its predecessor’s success, at
#7 on Country Digital Songs, #19 on Country Airplay and #13 on Hot Country
Songs. It seems likely that before long it too will reach #1.
Not according to Brantley. As I told you before, the wedding will likely happen in the fall. In my latest chat with B.G., he also revealed that he wrote his…
With the release of Hunter Hayes’ ‘Encore’ edition of his
self-titled debut album (the deluxe edition in laymen’s terms), has rocketed
the country pop singer back to the top of Top Country Albums, while the lead
single off the record, ‘I Want Crazy’ is now at #3 on Hot Country Songs and
Country Digital Songs. If that wasn’t enough, it’s now also at #7 on Country
Airplay. Leading that chart is Jake Owen with ‘Anywhere With You’, which is
down to #8 on Hot Country Songs and #22 on Country Digital Songs.
#1 on Country Digital Songs is Florida Georgia Line, with ‘Cruise’
(featuring Nelly), that is also #1 on Hot Country Songs for yet another week. ‘Here’s
To the Good Times’ is at #2 on Top Country Albums. This duo seem unstoppable,
even by Blake Shelton, who remains at #2 on both charts this week with ‘Boys
Round Here’ (featuring Pistol Annies). The song has dropped down to #4 on
Country Airplay, however, after being last week’s #1. His album, ‘Based On A
True Story…’, also stays at #3 this week. Darius Rucker’s ‘Wagon Wheel’ is
holding out too, down to #4 on Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs
while ‘True Believers’ is at #4 on Top Country Albums.
According to a recent poll (done by me), the highlight of the night belongs to two different incidents. First, 36% of those polled agreed that both Blake and Luke's joshing…
