Brantley Gilbert is slated to release Halfway to Heaven Deluxe, his first project from The Valory Music Co., on September 13.

Lead single "Country Must Be Country Wide" is quickly making its way up the charts and currently sits at No. 12 on MusicRow's CountryBreakout Chart.

Gilbert has already achieved success with two No. 1 hits as a songwriter, having penned the Jason Aldean hits "My Kinda Party" and "Dirt Road Anthem," which appear on Aldean's Platinum album My Kinda Party.

"As we tour country wide, I continue to realize that my fans ini the crowd are just like me," says Gilbert. "They are my closest friends because they listen to my music, they sing along with me and they have been through the same type of experiences. This album is essentially a storybook of my life and I am excited to see what those friends have to say about it."

The album's original 12 tracks have been remixed and remastered for the Deluxe version, including three newly recorded songs produced by Dan Huff and three videos. Big Machine Label Group Pres./CEO Scott Borchetta says, "Time has come! The demand for this album is off the hook. His live shows are an experience, his songs anthems, his personality contagious. I personally can't wait to get the final CD!"

Gilbert spent the earlier part of this summer on Willie Nelson's Country Throwdown Tour and continues to play shows across the country. For dates and more information, check out Brantley's official website!
