This is the Brantley Gilbert video that has now attracted an impressive 80 million views, for a track that’s certified triple platinum in the US. ‘Bottoms Up’ is the current single from his 2014 album Just As I Am, which was named Favourite Country Album at the American Music Awards. It also contains the previous smash hits ‘One Hell Of An Amen’ and ‘Small Time Throwdown.’
‘Bottoms Up’ has already hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts, adding to his career tally of ten million track sales from Gilbert’s three country albums to date. The song, also a top 20 US pop chart success, is being released as a UK single to coincide with his four-date tour there, which begins with a sellout show in Glasgow on 5 May.
Written by the Jefferson, Georgia native with Justin Weaver and Brett James, ‘Bottoms Up’ has more than 42 million streams to its name on Spotify as we write. His previous, platinum-selling album Halfway To Heaven contained three platinum singles, including his 2011 breakthrough hit ‘Country Must Be Country Wide.’
Gilbert has some US shows before he makes his latest journey across the Atlantic, with six more dates on his current Take It Outside tour with guests Justin Moore and Colt Ford.
