Brantley Gilbert’s “Bottoms Up” (A Rant)

December 23, 2013 - By Trigger  //  Down with Pop Country  //  109 Comments

brantley-gilbert-bottoms-up-2Warning: language

In this the season of giving, can we all at least come together as one, regardless of sex, race, orientation, creed, religious, political or social status, or cultural background, and swallow our collective differences, hold hands in the common bond of humanity in a rising chorus of hosannas, and all universally decree that Brantley Gilbert is the biggest douche ass to ever suck air on planet Earth?

Such a gift from heaven it has been to not have Brantley terrorizing us with new music for a good long while. But apparently Brantley was just resting up, refining his putrid exploration into the very innermost reaches of human vanity and self-ingratiation to then unleash upon his trashy fans with the sweet residue of methamphetamine glistening on the edges of their inflamed nostrils, the purest form of raging narcissism ever witnessed in Western Civilization in the construct of his new diarrhetic single “Bottoms Up,” and it’s accompanying video.

Some may want to tell Brantley Gilbert to go fuck himself for putting out such an awful song, but in Brantley Gilbert’s self-centered world, truly fucking himself would be the fulfillment of his wildest dreams. The video for “Bottoms Up” starts with a bunch of submissive prohibition-era flapper girls doing all the heavy lifting—loading up crates of bootleg alcohol into Brantley’s motor carriage, while Brantley orders them around, flexing his back muscles and showing off his water pistols for the camera. Yes, what a gentleman. Then what ensues is the most self-absorbed 5 minutes one can witness this side of masturbating to oneself in a mirror.

Like many of it’s sonic peers originating from mainstream country music males right now, “Bottoms Up” offers absolutely no redeeming nutritional value to its listeners whatsoever. It simply beats its audience over the head with a servile sense of rabid shallowness and wanton materialistic consumerism conveyed with Nickelback stylings underlayed by a buried banjo track. Joey Moi eat your heart out. About the only thing “Bottoms Up” is good for is supplying the soundtrack to a 16-year-old’s first drinking escapade subsequently followed by throwing up in a Taco Bell parking lot.

brantley-glibert-bottoms-up-1At one point in the video, three women are surrounding Brantley, rubbing their hands all over him. But these girls aren’t copping a feel, their feverishly searching for Brantley’s beleaguered genitals that have taken the form of two acorns flanking a Vienna sausage that then fled up into his abdomen like a rodent scampering into its hole—the result of a tireless regimen of prolonged steroid abuse; hence the nonstop, headlong pursuit of this song and video to compensate and dramatically oversell Brantley’s manly prowess and masculine superiority.

One interesting part about this song and video is the premise is all based around alcohol and drinking. Brantley is cast as a bootleger and party Barron, but in real life he swore off the sauce over 2 years ago, or supposedly did. Hey, I commend Brantley’s sobriety if it’s still ongoing and applaud his discipline, but it really doesn’t lend to the sincerity of whatever muddled, mumble-speaking and Ebonics-inflected message Brantley is trying to convey in this “Bottoms Up” monstrosity. Brantley may have a brass knuckles handle for his microphone to show just how much of a hard knocker he is, but his preferred beverage is more akin to 2% milk than 90-proof moonshine.

The video ends with Brantley pulling up to his hideout, and despite him being such a badass that he could impregnate three women at the same time simply by starring at them from across the room, he fails to notice the sheriff’s car parked 15 yards away from his illegal still shack. I don’t want to come across as too sensitive or gratuitous by saying the video for “Bottoms Up” ends with a cop killing scene similar to something Ice-T would dream up circa 1990, but man, that is certainly what it looks like. Sure, this is all make-believe, but the murdering of Brantley Gilbert’s dignity in “Bottoms Up” is very, very real.

You didn’t bottom up Brantley, you bottomed out.

Two guns way down.

    Brantley through you a soft ball with the line “Never thought a country song would make you move like that ” and you just left it.

    A hat with cryptic script on the back “Big Dawg” Did you pick that up in 1998?

  • Just when we think the mainstream “country” boys have given us their worst song ever with 1994 or My Kinda Night, they spit this song out. It’s like a nightmare booze impaired limbo competition where Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, and Brantlet Gilbert circle around each other saying, “How low can you go?” Who is next? I guarantee someone will come out with something even worse than this, as hard as that is too imagine.

      Sooner or later, someone’s going to have to reach rock bottom; the scary/sad thing is, you may be right that this BG travesty isn’t even it. I shudder to think of what next year holds in store…

          Speaking of Grady Smith, while I think ‘Entertainment Weekly’s music coverage has been in serious decline since about 2008 or so (I’ve been reading EW since 1994) — far fewer and shorter reviews, seeming to lean more heavily on hype than on calling attention to stuff that might not be on most people’s radar, plus I miss folks like Chris Willman, Alannah Nash and Tom Sinclair (and even David Browne) — Grady’s recent country coverage has been a real breath of fresh air.

  • I will confess, I like a few songs by Brantley Gilbert. However, what little bit of respect I had for him as an artist went down the toilet with this sad excuse for a song. This is so typical of the formula passing as mainstream “country” today. How many more songs do we need with lyrics about tailgates, daisy dukes and kegs? He really thinks he is some kind of hard core outlaw doesn’t he? I guess my big question is this: is he just trying to fool the fans or has he actually fooled himself at this point?

    Seriously, when did the les paul take the place of a Tele in country music and why did master songwriters like Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams or Johnny Cash get replaced with crud like this.

    It saddens me… tremendously.

  • It’s hard to understand how a guy who can write and record a wonderful tribute to a deceased friend in “Saving Amy” or a tribute to his mother like “Indiana’s Angel,” or even excellent moments of self reflection like “Modern Day Prodigal Son” or “The Best of Me” or even the title track from his last album “Halfway to Heaven,” can come out and write and record such obvious drivel like “Bottoms Up” or even “Kick it in the Sticks.” So disappointing.

    • I don’t think it is a problem of writing the song as much as it is the fact Brantley thinks he is so tough and cool.

      One of my favorite artists wrote Honkytonk Bodonkadonk, but he certainly didn’t take it seriously and do a video thinking he was some hardass.

      Doesn’t give an excuse to the songs that are bad, but certainly makes a difference when you write a song tongue and cheek vs. a song and video that you think you’re God’s gift.

      How anyone can like this guy is beyond me, but I have a feeling his fans (male fans) dress just like him.

         11 likes

      • Actually, I love his first two albums, but there’s no denying that Halfway to Heaven had some laughers (the aforementioned “Kick it in the Sticks” and “Take it Outside), and now this. This one is just awful. At least the other two were somewhat tongue in cheek and are at least fun bar songs. I don’t really think he thinks he’s God’s gift or anything. I think it’s small guy syndrome. This song is just awful. He’s an extremely gifted songwriter and I just hate seeing him waste that talent on garbage like this.

        I, too, am a huge fan of Jamey Johnson. Honky Tonk Badonkadonk and one other Trace Adkins tune (I can’t remember which) are songs I actually don’t mind because they aren’t serious. Some artists can write like that. Some can’t.

  • I had the sound off and let the video play and I was struck by how utterly anti-country this turd is. None of the trappings or traditions of country music are present in this video. Obviously this is not because of the “story” being told in the video but a reflection of the fact that this dork just is not country. If I did not know what it was, I would have guessed that it was a Blink 182 reject trying to act like Vin Diesel but trying project a low-grade gangsta rap life-style. But hey, country must evolve, right?

  • What really bothers me about this song is: I’m totally okay with a feel-good, pump-your-fist chorus…but the verses aren’t telling a STORY. At all. It’s as if the whole song was written by dumping out a cup of buzz-word dice. It’s not saying anything or taking you on any kind of journey. That, to me, is what is supposed to be the core of a country song.

  • I bought one of BG’s CDs a few years ago, gave it 1 spin and let it rest.

    The songs were non-melodic and the lyrics were vapid.

    I wish the guy well with his sobriety, but I don’t care for his music.

    In reality, he probably has more fans than many of the authentic country music artists I follow and try to support.

  • If these negative comments were from the demographic he was targeting, then it would be a pretty good indication this nonsense would fail. Unfortunately the disemboweling of country music continues with this song and others by bryan, aldean, and florida georgia. It will sell, and we’ll hear less “country” on country music stations. There are legitimate artists still willing to put real country music out there if we are willing to purchase it and attending their shows.

That means there’s more for the poor fools like me who actually have to listen to this shit on repeat for the next 6 months. I’m not sure if the video or the song is worse, but combined it’s a steaming pile of dog crap.

    The really sad thing is that there are so many artists who truly care about the genre and want to make real music, yet they can’t because of this fuckface. It’s not country, it’s not good, I’m not even sure if I can consider this music. I’m pretty sure that music shouldn’t make your ears bleed.

  • I get it, its all about a good time. All these “bro” songs are about good times. But good grief, I don’t know about anyone else on this site, but life isn’t all about beer, tailgates, the girl in the passenger seat etc. Its just as much about the bad times (and no, Brantley, Luke, Jason etc. a bad time isn’t about losing out on a chance to cop a cheap feel on that girl in the passenger seat).

    Hell, I’m only 31 years old. I didn’t grow up with Jones or Haggard. I grew up with Garth, Clint Black, and the like. I guess what I’m trying to say is that life isn’t a party all the time. After awhile you just sound like a caricature (sorry for the spelling) of whatever it is you’re trying to represent.

    • Shamon,
      I hear you man.

      The biggest problem, beyond the target audience of bro-country, is that these guys don’t experience anything to write about.

      They write songs like we go to work. Day in and day out they sit trying to write a song to top the charts vs. writing about actual real life experience to share with listeners. Hell, Dallas Davidson one of the premiere writers in Nashville admitted he writes what he knows, and then went on to say how he and his buddies sit by the river on tailgates all the time.

      A few people have pointed out Brantley’s “good” songs, and I would argue they were written when he was experiencing things. Not when he was trying to top a chart and a magazine cover.

      From Jones and Haggard to Garth and Clint Black, they all sand songs about their (or the song writers) experience. Sure some were elementary songs for radio, but many were of life experiences.

      Brantley, Aldean, Bryan…blah blah blah…none of them are doing anything worth writing about except literally drinking some Aquafina and the occasional busch light while riding on a million dollar bus. They sign autographs for 17 yr. old groupies….these guys don’t do shit that is really worth singing about (unless you are 17 and drinking beer in the back of your truck is as loose as life can be)

  • I am a fan of Gilbert and I agree that this particular offering is not his best. The lyrics are weak and very typical. However, if you look at the body of his work, he has written some classic songs in my opinion. Saving Amy is one that holds water against any country song out there. I understand that most of the posters here and the one who penned this article wants traditional country back. I understand that, but music evolves in all genres. Country has been slow to adapt to this natural evolution, but it is happening fast and furious now with artists like Brantley, Luke Bryan, and Jason Aldean. Most of these artist’s hits are more of the drivel oriented songs for radio play, but actually each of them have some very good songs that really tell a story like traditional country is known to produce. They just do not get picked for radio play. Really these new artists are bringing back a new brand of Southern Rock and should not be lumped into Country music. Country radio is just adapting to include this genre in their rotation. So for those of you that are so concerned and upset with this style, just settle down and think of these artists as Southern Rock artists and not Country artists.

      Second, so he punched a guy going at his girl, or some random chick from the party? Sure he might drive a Honda Civic and wear American Eagle (nice brand), but at least he has enough guts to give a shit about his music (Kick it in the Sticks video).

      Plus most people who think he’s bad ass have never listen to metal, or rock, period. Even Chad Kroeger or Scott Stapp can take him down shitless (no promises).

  • I don’t even know what to say…except, I am pretty sure that after my comment is read, it will not stay posted very long…

    I stumbled upon this website by accident, but was incredibly embarrassed that someone that claims to be trying to save country music – did this by bashing this “entertainment” video by Brantley Gilbert. How couldn’t you possibly think that anyone with any heart for people of any genre could have any respect for this person…these people that are speaking with such profanity to attempt to tell how horrible they think Brantley’s video is. Talk about losing respect…who could possibly give any credibility to this person/these people. Brantley is in the entertainment industry…his video is entertainment. Do I agree that the message in the video is less than what I would want my children to aspire to be, but guess what, I speak to my children directly about this video and others as to what is appropriate in real life and what is not real life. If I don’t think something is appropriate for my children, I don’t let them watch it. But as adults, I would think that all of you with the potty mouths speaking about Brantley cant possible put yourself any higher or think yourselves any more respectable than you say he is…or isn’t. I would think that you would approach this with something better than “trash” if you want to truly make a difference or even make a respectable point. I believe that you should evaluate yourself before you lash out at others…you have done nothing toward making a point except to prove that there are different types of trash. I am so sorry that I stumbled upon this site, but hope that you will realize how much you should focus on cleaning up yourself before telling the world how someone else(BG or any one else) how horrible they are.

Like tongues… Everyone has a different taste for things… Or tattoos, another form of expression… Beauty is in the eye of the beholder… Not for you or any to ‘judge’.
    You people are part of the human problem… All the energy and anger that it took you too come here and bitch… You could have been kissing your loved ones or spending time with your kids or working… Instead you came here… Absolutely pathetic…

Music is something you feel and this is what ppl want to hear now a days! If you don’t like it…..don’t watch it and bash him! I’m sure he makes more than anyone else on here! So he has tats, and sings about rowdy, rugged things! Rather hear that than “my achey breaky heart” or however it’s spelled! I even say I’m not just a huge fan of this song but ohwell! I think Justin Bieber should be hung up side down and beat to death but many will disagree so I don’t say anything! BG has talent to change country into something deeper and “grungyer”! But this is just my opinion!

  • You people are unbelieveably pathetic!! Just because you dont like Bottoms Up doesnt mean you can hate on Brantley Gilbert. He is one of the realest country singers. He writes all his songs and doesnt write anything he or someone close to him hasnt experienced. He has said he doesnt have fans, he has friends. I think he is just about the best country singer out there right now singing real songs. Honestly if you have enough time on your hands to write such a long hateful review, you should seriously look for a job or a hobby. BG NATION!!!

  • Hey
    All videos are sexy.
    I bet u it takes a lot of guts to shake it for us.
    And admit it, you weren’t complaining when shania put on those hot pants and boots.
    Its called, showmanship and appealing to demand of the fan.
    The people talking the most shit, here also happen to know every single detail and can name more song lyrics than I can. And I don’t hate.
    I listen to country rock allll of the time and aspire to play my drums to each song .
    Its silly
    But they are laughing all the way to the bank.
    B nice
    I’m curious to the avetage age in this blog
    I am 45 and if I had to listen to old country I wouldn’t be saving every time for a double kick petal ..or anything really .

  • How about instead of criticizing one of country’s remaining outlaws. You accept the fact that he has something to be proud about. He came from a small town Georgia boy to a big shot in Nashville wit this song. I don’t like very many songs but Vratley never let’s the fans down and that is who truly matters. Not some no life losers who think that because a song isn’t played the way it’s expected it’s automatically bad. If ou think you’re so good why don’t you write a country song. That’s what I thought

  • Why do you have to be such a hater? How about you put yourself in Brantley’s shoes. You write a song that you are sure is good, you release it 5 months prior to your new album coming out, and you hope it entices fans enough to purchase a FULL new album by you. Wouldn’t you try to release something catchy? You are basically ranting on like BG isn’t happy about what he produced….he is one of the very few, I stress VERY few, country artists that still write their own music. You go write 3 albums worth of songs over a 6 year period and tell me you don’t have a questionable song. You childish bastard. Go rant about something else like 12 year olds taking up too much of your Twitter Feed. Leave us BG Nation fans alone. Brantley may have changed, indeed, but he didn’t sell out and didn’t conform to your standards. We still like him

      • You’re all about Saving Country Music, so why not, “Let’s Save Brantley Gilbert”, if he had changed, instead you just decided to push him off?

  • Honestly sounds to me like you’re jealous. You’re a nearly 350lb alcoholic that believe the songs you write are hit songs, and when somebody actually comes out with a hit song, you have to hate on it in every way possible. Talking about his muscles, his girls… You jealous bastard lol. It’s pathetic brother. Get off your fat ass and go to the gym so you can spy on the girls there in the creepy way that you like to. Hell, masturbate another time. I’m sure you’ve only done it 4 times today. 5 won’t hurt lol. Delete this Post chunky. Or I’ll delete it for you. Maybe it’s Google Search Results you’re looking for. Bravo, but still. There’s better ways to do it fatso

You sound like a bunch of fuckin nancies crying to each other, if you dont like the song, dont listen to it, its as simple as that no need to make up some bullshit and say “omg hes ripping off other artists, or hes a douche.” shut the fuck up, put you vaginas away and change the channel, sorriest excuse for men ive ever seen. thanks for the laugh though, as pathetic as your comments are i enjoyed reading how much of a wuss you guys are.

    • Trust me, t bailey. No real southerner would listen to crap like this. They would rather be listening to Merle, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, or the like. Most real southerners I know view this guy as an embarassment. But I see what you did there!!

  • While there are a few Brantley gilbert songs that I don’t mind, this one makes me want to regurgitate my dinner. He comes off as being a chauvinist prick and the lyrics are so unoriginal. I’m so sick of these types of songs, I’m surprised he didn’t use the term “good stuff” like every other artist in Nashville who sings about nothing but partying and getting loaded. I’m slowly but surely losing all interest and respect for BG.

  • As a police officer I am disgusted at the end of the video when it was implied that he shot the police officer. Wrong message (and I do not care what decade this video was suppose to be set in) this was no different to me than the thug rap “artists” there is. It will be hard pressed before I send a dime on Gilbert.

  • So you all think Brantley gilbert is crap but have any of you heard a single one of his other songs. I mean seriously, he was acting its a video people not his life, this is how the director and him thought the video should go doesn’t mean that’s him to the t. Have any of you heard you promised or you don’t know her like I do or my kind of crazy or the best of me or even more then miles. You talk shit but do you realize that this is the only sexist song, or racist in any way, that he has ever wrote or made into a video. Come on people his first hit song and video country must be country wide was about how anyone could be country and basically don’t judge a book by its cover yet here you all are saying he is horrible because of one stupid song that tons of people actually love. You guys are no better then what he pretends to be in this video. I love Brantley gilbert he is an amazing song writer and singer and I hope he never takes this load of crap to heart cause you people can’t deal with a simple video. I have seen tons of movies and videos where cops die in real life its tragic and I have respect for cops but these are actors they get up and go on, I’m sorry if you can’t understand that he doesn’t actually go around hurting cops or even disrespecting them. You don’t know him so saying all this shit about how he is a douche bag or whatever is just hurting your credibility in my eyes. BG is amazing and ya’ll should really do some research on someone before you go and talk shit.

  • Brantley Gilberts songs are about what everyone that likes country should listen to especially if you like country. There is a few positive and negative things about this kind of music. The positive thing is that you want to listen to his songs forever and negative things that people don’t like his songs because they think it is to boring.
    People like his music because he always comes out with a new album that are cool and are actually good songs to listen to. At least once every week on of his songs are the most recommended on the radio station or in the top 5 songs.
    He has shown maturity as both a vocalist and songwriter’ Bottoms Up’ seems like a fun track for him to play at his live shows that will surely get the crowd excited.” Matt Bjorke of Rough stock rated it 3.5 out of 5, saying, “If you like the sound of the stuff from Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett, you’ll certainly enjoy ‘Bottoms Up.’ If you wanted the more ‘edgy’ rocking’ side to Brantley, this one certainly isn’t going to be your kind of song.

  • WOW! I can imagine the extremely small penis of the person who wrote this. Hate Much? Brantley Gilbert is HOT in this video. It’s amazing. The artistry is stunning, but that’s only considering the video and based on the other country videos being put out making the top 10 SOMEHOW, it’s better than stunning.
    It’s like a new era in music. Brantley is bringing together so many different genres in this song, in his videos and in his overall persona. I am shocked that the idiot that wrote this can’t see the new path being carved out for other artists by Brantley.
    So sad to let your obvious intimidation of his sexual excellence blind you from the true art in this. Shame on you. You may deserver your opinion but you don’t deserve a site to put it on because your an idiot.

    • Oh and I am a photographer familiar with the industry. Seeing work like this is what inspires people in my industry and makes us green with envy because we didn’t do it. This is excellent work all the way from concept, lighting, wardrobe and down to the details. This is a very poor write up by someone influenced by jealousy.

      • Oh and PS… I had no clue who Brantley Gilbert was until I searched this video because the sound and collaboration was so different from other artists. So, I’m not just one of whoever the “BG NATION” is. I recognized the art so I followed it. Grow a dick and stop being a dick haters.
