That Nashville Soundbites- Brantley Gilbert- Halfway to Heaven

That Nashville Sound receives many different CD releases throughout the year from indie and new artists that we’re doing short mini CD reviews on. We call them That Nashville Soundbites- it’s a feature that will allow us to give some props to some albums and artists that deserve a spotlight on their work.

Release Date: September 2011
Music Label: Valory Music Group
The Skinny: In the time since his last album, Modern Day Prodigal Son, until now, Gilbert has moved more from a Jason Aldean sound to a more southern rock influenced Lynyrd Skynyrd sound. With themes of bad boy behavior, this sophomore album finds Gilbert cementing his personality on the still-safe-for-soccer-moms outlaw movement aka Eric Church. "Saving Amy" is an outstanding track worth hearing- a tune written from a ghost's perspective. This album was originally released a year ago by Average Joe's and has a new version of Aldean's big hit, "Dirt Road Anthem"

Standout Tracks: "Saving Amy”, “My Kind Of Crazy”,
