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

Tim McGraw is back with new music (that Jason pretty much hates) in the form of his new single Lookin' For That Girl, and the newly announced Sundown Heaven Town 2014 Tour.

Is it just me or is that like THE hardest tour name ever to try and remember? I can already imagine myself calling it the Sundowners Tour or the Sunny Heaven Tour or other variations of the name. 

Ugh.

Well here's a bit of completely surprising (just shocking I'm telling you) news – Jason Aldean has teamed up with the MLB for his 2014 Burn It Down Tour

Jason told "Good Morning America" this morning that he's planning about 50 tour stops and the tour will include Tyler Farr and Florida Georgia Line as openers. 

Yeah, kind of like the "inaccurate" info I had yesterday. 

You can watch Jason's announcement that he made on "Good Morning America" this morning here. In the meantime, check out Jason performing When She Says Baby below. 

I will update this post once all the info such as tour dates, etc. is announced. 

Update: Full press release after the jump…

Update: Jason's PR firm contacted me and said some of this info is bogus and asked that I remove the story. I won't remove it, but I will warn you that some of it may be innacurate. Pretty sure what the PR firm contacting me means is that someone's getting ready to get a nice tongue lashing for releasing the info early. Oops.  

Update 2: Jason's made the tour official

Jason Aldean has been teasing fans all week with odd clues and said that he would be making a huge announcement on Thursday. 

Now, however, the announcement has been made a day early from an unexpected source … Jason's own mobile app. It's not clear if the early announcement was an oops or just a way to show appreciation for fans who have downloaded the app. 

At any rate, The Music Universe says that the big announcement fans have been waiting for is Jason's “2014 Burn It Down Tour” which will feature Florida Georgia Line, Tyler Farr, and a few dates with Miranda Lambert. 

Still not sure what Screech has to do with the tour. Anyone have any idea?
