Brantley Gilbert, ‘Country Must Be Country Wide’ – Song Spotlight
To some country music fans, Brantley Gilbert is the songwriter behind Jason Aldean's hits 'My Kinda Party' and 'Dirt Road Anthem,' but the Georgia country rocker is about to change their minds with his new single, 'Country Must Be Country Wide.'
The rockin' new tune from Gilbert will have you crankin' the radio up and the windows down this summer, as the infectious beat is a throwback to some of the greatest rebellious tunes in country music history.
"In every state there's a station / Playing Cash, Hank, Willie and Waylon / Foreign cars and four-wheel drives / Cowboys and hillbillies / Small towns, big cities / There ain't no doubt in my mind / Country must be country wide," Brantley sings in the chorus.
The tune will ring home to every listener, and it could easily become the new working man's anthem of our time, as Brantley sings:
"Well it ain’t where, it’s how you live / We weren’t raised to take / We were raised to give the shirt off our backs to anyone in need / We bow our heads before we eat, before we start our day, before we fall asleep / Because in God we trust and we believe / Yeah we say what’s wrong / And we know what’s right / Ol' Hanky said it all / When he said, ‘Country folks can survive.’"
'Country Must Be Country Wide' is slated to hit radio at the end of April. The tune will be the first single from Gilbert's forthcoming album to be released on Valory Music Co. later this year.
