Country crooner Brantley Gilbert of “Bottoms Up” fame will stop at the Bryce Jordan Center on Sept. 26 as part of his Let It Ride tour, the latest addition to the BJC’s concert revelations this summer.
Gilbert hails from Georgia and released his first studio album, “Modern Day Prodigal Son,” in 2009. He really gained steam as an artist in 2013 when he won the Academy of Country Music’s Best New Male Artist award. A trio of his songs reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Country charts (“Bottoms Up,” “Country Must Be Country Wide,” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do”). Gilbert was also a co-writer of popular country songs “Dirt Road Anthem” and “My Kinda Party” by Jason Aldean.
Director of Sales and Marketing for the Bryce Jordan Center Bernie Punt said they can’t release any more information about the concert yet, but expect more to be available by the end of the week. Gilbert’s website says presale tickets will be available July 14. According to the website, he’ll be joined by Staind lead singer Aaron Lewis.
