Having become one of the most recognizable names in music, 5FDP frequently play all major festivals and sell out arenas around the world. Since their debut album, The Way of the Fist came out in 2007 the band has released seven consecutive albums that were certified Gold or Platinum by the RIAA, as well as two chart topping Greatest Hits albums.

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 this summer before joining Five Finger Death Punch this fall for their co-headlining arena tour throughout the U.S. For tour dates, tickets and additional information, visit BrantleyGilbert.com or follow him Instagram and Twitter @BrantleyGilbert and Facebook.com/BrantleyGilbertMusic.
ABOUT CORY MARKS:
Cory Marks mixes country music’s storytelling tradition and heavy rock’s loud, unapologetic sounds. His debut, “Outlaws and Outsiders,” which features country music icon Travis Tritt, Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch, and Mick Mars of Mötley Crüe, was a global hit, going GOLD in Canada and receiving more than 87.8M million streams worldwide. With a new music in the works, and the upcoming horror-thriller film THE RETALIATORS, in which he has an onscreen role and two songs featured on the original soundtrack, Cory has just begun to make his mark(s) on the music industry.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This sure sounds like a good one. I’ve always enjoyed Five Finger Death Punch in concert but will admit that its been a few years since I’ve seen them in action. I am not too up on Gilberts sound since I don’t follow much Country anything but if I manage to make one of these appearances I will be for sure catching the whole thing. The lead act Cory Marks sounds interesting as well and with the ticket prices these days I always try to encourage my audience to see as much of the performance as possible. Closing up I wonder what you out there in the readership think about this announcement. Will you be heading out to one of the dates in your region? Chime in down below in the comments section and please stay safe out there. See you next time.
