Gearing up to hit the road together, multi-Platinum selling country rocker Brantley Gilbert releases “Son Of The Dirty South” featuring Jelly Roll via The Valory Music Co., readying fans for the Son of The Dirty South Tour kicking off next Thursday, June 30 in Jacksonville, Fla. Listen to the song HERE and tune in to the premiere of the official music video on Facebook.com at 1 p.m. ET this afternoon. Tickets for the tour are on sale at now at BrantleyGilbert.com.
“I had a blast working on this one with Jelly,” shares Gilbert. “We’ve been itching to write together for a while now, and we had a lot of fun putting it together. You don’t always get to record a song with your co-writers, so to hop in the studio with him too was a real treat.”
“Brantley is already one of my favorite artists, and we got to write this song together and release it to the fans ahead of our tour starting,” adds Jelly Roll. “I really can’t wait to get out on that stage with Brantley and perform it live this summer. Get ready.”
Marking their first collaboration, the pair co-wrote “Son Of The Dirty South” with Andrew Baylis, offering a look into their southern upbringing and brandishing their appreciation for all things unruly, rowdy and loud, culminating into a good time:
‘Cause I’m a son of the dirty south, got to trippin’
Mama washin’ out my dirty mouth and pickin’ switches
I’m a hell raisin’ rebel that you better never tread on
Gun-totin’, drinkin’, smokin’ hoss that you can bet on
Tatted up, I’m gassed up
I’m throwed off and I’m buck wild
Loud and rowdy I’m a son of the dirty south
I’m from a place where they mix rock, country and hip hop
Somewhere between Hank, Three 6 and Kid Rock
Johnny Cash all black, it’s that old school flavor
Sippin’ somethin’ rippin’ more lines than notebook paper
Outlaw spirit my middle finger stuck up again, bad boy
We all know good women love troubled men
Got that music cranked loud
We won’t turn shit down
Peaceful people but believe it we gon’ burn shit down
“Son Of The Dirty South” follows “Rolex® On A Redneck,” Gilberts collaboration with longtime friend Jason Aldean, having toured together and swapped songs throughout their careers. Penned while on a writer’s retreat in Texas, Gilbert has been preparing more new music to be delivered later this year.
With the release of 2021’s Ballads of the Broken, genre-bending artist/songwriter Jelly Roll saw his career soar to new heights with the RIAA Gold-certification of his hit single, “Save Me” and more than 1 Billion collective streams of his catalogue. The Nashville native recently celebrated his first No. 1 single – the multi-week chart-topping “Dead Man Walking” – and with his single “Son of a Sinner” nearing the Top 20 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, Jelly becomes the first artist to top the Active Rock charts while having a Top 30 single at Country Radio with his first song chart debut on each (Billboard).

About Brantley Gilbert
With back-to-back Platinum albums and a grassroots following millions strong, Brantley Gilbert’s music has been shared, covered and adopted as the soundtrack to Saturday night and Sunday morning by audiences around the world. The Georgia native who started as the defiant life-of-the-party can still go ‘til sunrise, but he’s also emerged as something far greater: the leader of a massive tribe of hard-working, fun-loving believers for whom electric guitar-shredding, rapping, and twang can go hand-in-hand-in-hand. They call themselves the BG Nation, and when the BG Nation watches Gilbert on a stage, they don’t just see a star. They see themselves. Seven No. 1 hits punctuate his career: “Country Must be Country Wide,” “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do,” CMA Awards Song of the Year nominee “Dirt Road Anthem,” “My Kinda Party,” RIAA 5x Platinum-certified “Bottoms Up,” “One Hell of an Amen” and collaboration with Lindsay Ell “What Happens In A Small Town.” Gilbert’s landmark record Just As I Am clinched the 2014 American Music Award for Favorite Country Album. Earning praise from the New York Times, NPR, American Songwriter, and more, Gilbert has mined a rich vein of conflict between the party and the pew on all of his albums. Instead of toiling in limbo, unable to enjoy good times for fear of Judgment Day, Gilbert fully lives––rowdy friend, man of faith, devoted husband, smitten new father––just as he is. His latest release “Son Of The Dirty South” featuring Jelly Roll is available now via The Valory Music Co., and the two embark on the Son Of The Dirty South Tour June 30.

About Jelly Roll
Stoney Creek/BMG artist Jelly Roll independently built a legion of fans with his raw, rough-edge lyrics and “man of the people” charisma. With more than a billion collective streams to date, the genre-bending talent’s current single “Son of a Sinner” -originally released independently on his 2021 album Ballads Of the Broken- has garnered more than 6 million streams and debuted #38 on Billboard’s Country Music Chart ahead of its official release, earning Jelly a slot on Billboard’s all-genre Emerging Artist chart. A Nashville native, the singer/songwriter has critics noting “his music takes those raw, unreserved verses and melds elements of country, rock, and hip-hop into his own signature style” (Billboard) and “with powerful tunes like ‘Son of a Sinner’ and ‘Sober’ it’s clear that when it comes to music, Jelly Roll’s heart is often right—singing with a profound amount of emotion and tact, the songs and their revealing lyrics soar to brilliantly uplifting heights, shining light onto some of life’s darkest circumstances” (American Songwriter). The multi-genre talent’s “Dead Man Walking” single is currently #4 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart and has over 10 million streams and counting. “Son of A Sinner” and “Dead Man Walking” are the follow up singles to Jelly’s breakout hit, “Save Me,” the GOLD-certified single with more than 65 million YouTube views that ushered a new wave of musical growth for the multi-talented artist. Hailing from the Antioch neighborhood of Nashville, Jelly Roll sold recently sold out the iconic Ryman Auditorium and averages more than 200 shows a year. He is currently on the road headlining and on select dates with Shinedown and Brantley
