Brantley Gilbert

When: Sat., Aug. 26, 7 p.m. 2017

“I don’t make fast albums,” says powerhouse pop-country singer Brantley Gilbert in his website bio. “I have to live my life, let it sink in, and then write the songs.” The result is 2017’s The Devil Don’t Sleep, his latest album of rock-infused boot-stompers drawn from real-life issues. Themes include standing up to violence against women, remembering friends lost, and letting off steam with a few beers — all served with a healthy dose of fist-pumping energy. Gilbert’s fans, known as the BG Nation, don cowboy hats and head to the Champlain Valley Exposition, where the Georgia-based songster doles out hits such as “The Weekend” and “Bottoms Up.”

Price: $32.25-51.25.
