If you’ve ever puzzled “What Happens In A Small Town,” Brantley Gilbert and Lindsay Ell are right here to inform you. The singer-songwriters teamed as much as launch a brand new country-rock ballad forward of Gilbert’s forthcoming 2019 album.
Big Machine Label Group founder Scott Borchetta was the one who advised that Ell be featured on the brand new heartbreak-laced monitor.
"He was like, 'Dude, I'm listening to some Lindsay Ell stuff, and it's unbelievable,'" Gilbert not too long ago recalled to Bobby Bones. “My mother-in-law and brother-in-law wished to go to the Opry, and we went and Lindsay was taking part in there that night time. And, then it simply clicked when Scott introduced that up. I used to be like, man, that's it and not using a query."
The track, which he told Taste of Country was impressed by his previous with spouse Amber Cochran, has a mellow acoustic opening that's later met with a punchy refrain: ”What occurs in a small city/ Stays in a small city/ Every again highway we’ve ever gone down/ Friday night time bleachers, Sunday pews/ Ain't a county line mile and not using a reminiscence of you." The tune is frequently pushed alongside by Gilbert’s gritty vocals, that are layered with Ell’s shiny, wandering harmonies in addition to her personal guitar abilities.
The new monitor dropped alongside a lyric video that cycles via photos of nation city areas. Check it out beneath.
