After posting a live video of his new song “Rockin’ Chairs” on January 18th, Brantley Gilbert has debuted another live performance of a new song, “Tried to Tell Ya,” from his forthcoming album The Devil Don’t Sleep.
“Tried to Tell Ya” is a brooding, hip-hop influenced rocker with a healthy dose of Gilbert’s trademark Southern flourishes. Gilbert co-wrote the track with Rhett Akins and Ben Hayslip and plays the defiant outlaw role. “I tried to tell ya I was crazy,” he sings to a lover, before ultimately admitting “you saved my life.” Gilbert performed the new song at his album release party on the Honda Stage at Los Angeles’ iHeartRadio Theater.
“Tried to Tell Ya” is currently available on digital download and streaming services. The Devil Don’t Sleep is out January 27th via Big Machine Label Group imprint the Valory Music Co.
Gilbert kicks off his Devil Don’t Sleep Tour on February 2nd in Reading, Pennsylvania with supporting acts Tucker Beathard, Luke Combs and Brian Davis.
