Titled Just As I Am, this is Gilbert’s third studio album, the followup to Halfway to Heaven, which was originally released in 2010. See the Just As I Am track listing and cover art on Radio.com.
“I have always said that each of my albums has told a story … my story, and this album is no different,” Gilbert said in a press statement. “This one picks up where Halfway to Heaven left off. I have gone through a lot the past few years … a lot of highs and lows and all of that is reflected in this project. My fans know I’m a straight shooter so I didn’t leave anything out. I think there is something for everyone — from my party side to the gentler stuff. I can’t wait to share this new music with the BG Nation.”
“Bottoms Up” is the lead single from Just As I Am, which features 11 songs, all of them written or cowritten by Gilbert.
Gilbert will also release a deluxe version of the album through Walmart that will include three bonus tracks: “G.R.I.T.S.” (Brantley Gilbert), “Read Me My Rights” (Brantley Gilbert, Brian Davis, Jess Franklin) and “Grown Ass Man” (Brantley Gilbert).
