Brantley Gilbert's first night on the Blood, Sweat and Beers Tour with headliner Eric Church kicked off on Jan. 19 in Arkansas. While the tour still has a long ways to go, Gilbert hopes to take some of his songwriting talents, which have landed him multiple No. 1 hits, and blend them with Church's expertise. Church is currently experiencing his first chart-topper this week with 'Drink in My Hand.'

"I’m hoping we have some time to write during the tour together," Gilbert tells Taste of Country. "That would be really cool. I think we could come up with some really cool stuff. Hopefully that will happen. We've got over 60 dates to make it happen!"

As far as the tour itself, Gilbert says both he and Church have high expectations that it's going to be a non-stop night of anything goes. "I think it’s going to be wide open," Gilbert says with a grin. "It’s going to be a lot of fun. Eric and I were talking about it the other day. It’s going to be wild [laughs] … balls to the wall! I think Eric and I might have been cut out of the same mold. He does things his way, and I like to do them my way. It will be interesting. I’m looking forward to this whole tour."
