Brantley Gilbert is returning to Gilford as one of country’s most prolific songwriters, fresh off the release of his fourth studio album, The Devil Don’t Sleep. Starting his career in Nashville as a songwriter, Brantley Gilbert turned heads in 2011 re-releasing “Halfway to Heaven” with its first two singles “Country Must Be Country Wide” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do” reaching No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs Chart and winning the ACM’s New Male Artist award in 2013. With his second album in early 2014, Gilbert once again rocked the country charts with “Bottoms Up”, “Small Town Throwdown” and racked up another No 1. on the Charts with “One Hell of An Amen” in Summer 2015. In early 2017, Gilbert released, The Devil Don’t Sleep, with lead single “The Weekend”. The album represents the most recent, highly positive, chapter of his life, with a new level of honesty and depth for Gilbert who wrote or co-wrote every track. The album’s title track “The Devil Don’t sleep” acknowledges the valleys of his life, and became the core of the record.
Joining Brantley on “The Devil Don’t Sleep Tour” is Tyler Farr. With a resonant tenor that has a powdery bottom and a warm center, Farr heats up difficult emotions and peels back what most men barricade behind bravado. With his latest album, Suffer In Peace, the classically-trained vocalist opens his veins and examines the pain that comes from being truly engaged with living. The album’s lead single “A Guy Walks Into A Bar” reach no. 1 on Country Airplay charts.
Rounding out this triple bill is country music newcomer Luke Combs. One of Rolling Stone “Country Artists You Need To Know”, Combs, has only been playing guitar for five years, but has his own unique style, inspired by Eric Church. His first single “Hurricane” reached the top 10 on the iTunes Country charts in 2015.
